It was announced today that the United Steelworkers (USW) Locals 2102 and 3267, their respective executive boards and EVRAZ North America have approved a three-year extension of the existing collective bargaining agreement for the Pueblo, Colo., facility. It is effective September 10, 2014 through September 10, 2017, and includes a provision for employee wage in-creases for each year of the extension. “We’re pleased with this agreement,” indicated Robert La Venture, USW District 12 Director. “It not only provides solid wages for over 950 of our members, but it’s the right step forward in supporting prosperity for the steel industry.” “This is a reflection of the collaborative and respectful relationship between our company, USW leadership and our employees,” said EVRAZ North America President and CEO Conrad Winkler. “With our recent investments in operations and product development, increased capacity in steelmaking and employment growth of over 25 percent in the past five years, we are positioned to serve our customers well into the future.” EVRAZ North America is a wholly owned subsidiary of EVRAZ, one of the largest vertically integrated steel and mining businesses in the world.
