HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WCHS/WVAH) — Eyewitness News has learned Special Metals and its union employees have reached a deal.
The steelworkers were locked out for four days after Special Metals shut its doors abruptly Friday.
While it is not the first time the union has had a quarrel with Special Metals, it is the first time in years that workers were off the job. This instance started when contract negotiations broke down over wages and benefits.
Special Metals representatives and union leaders have been negotiating a contract since employees were sent home mid-shift Friday.
Monday night union workers voted on a new contract.
Employees will return to work Monday evening.
