The Times reported that the United Steelworkers union crashed an appearance by US Steel CEO Mr David Burritt at Avalon Manor in Merrillville in Indiana, who was in town to give a talk to the Association for Iron & Steel Technology, a rallying for a fair contract. As per report, hundreds of steelworkers lined an access road along US 30 outside the banquet hall, calling for a contract with no concessions at a time when the company has been enjoying record profits.District 7 Rapid Response Coordinator Mr Jerome Davidson said “US Steel is making record profits and our members are entitled to a fair contract But David Burritt is trying to use profit sharing as a tool to not give you a raise. We are not going to get a concessionary contract. We are going to get a fair contract, one for all, one for our brothers and sisters. We're here to welcome him and let him know we want a fair contract that is competitive with the one we've seen at Cleveland-Cliffs. We want a contract with fair compensation. They have record profits. The concession stand is not open. We're at the table in Pittsburgh ready to bargain and he's here. We're ready to bargain.”US Steel is offering employees a 15% raise over four years, compared to the 20% Cleveland-Cliffs offered in a proposal union members are now voting on. Pittsburgh-based US Steel is touting the USD 66,000 in profit-sharing bonuses it provided employees over the last 18 months, saying workers do well when the company does well.
