Steelworkers reviewing Special Metals proposal

HUNTINGTON — The United Steelworkers are reviewing a tentative agreement between the union and Special Metals.

Media outlets report union members were reviewing a contract proposal submitted by the company Friday. Union members are working under the extension of a contract that expired at midnight Friday.

The union represents about 400 workers at the Huntington alloy plant.

Union representative Denny Longwell told WCHS-TV that most workers were happy with the proposal, but others wish it was better.

Workers and union representatives have said health insurance premiums are an issue.
