Written by Sandy Williams

United Steel Workers at Cliffs Natural Resources have agreed to extend their labor contract for 30 days beginning on Oct. 1, along with a rolling 168-hour extension if talks exceed 30 days.

The USW bargaining committee says it has made progress on some issues but “remain far apart on many others.”

The committee is returning home to meet with local unions to provide updates and get feedback from members.

The present contract expires Oct. 1 and covers workers at Hibbing Taconite, Tilden Mining, United Taconite and Empire Mining.
