Members of the United Auto Workers (UAW) union at AK Steel’s flat rolled stainless steel facility in Ohio, USA, have ratified a new three-year labour agreement.

“The agreement continues to serve the interests of both the company and [union branch] Local 3462 members in our increasingly competitive industry,” James Wainscott, president, chairman and ceo of the Ohio-based company, said.

The new agreement, which covers 330 hourly workers at the plant, will take effect on March 31 and expire on March 31, 2016.
