Cleveland-Cliffs, USW Reach Tentative Agreement at Mansfield

Written by Sandy Williams

Cleveland-Cliffs and the United Steelworkers have reached a tentative agreement for a 53-month labor contract at the steelmaker’s Mansfield Works in Ohio. The new contract, if ratified, will be effective April 1, 2021, and cover approximately 300 represented workers.

Lourenco Goncalves, Cliffs’ Chairman, President and CEO, stated, “We are pleased to reach a new labor contract with the USW for our employees at Mansfield Works, one of our several EAF steel mills. As we have done in previous union contract negotiations, the Cliffs’ team was able to expeditiously get to a deal that is fair and equitable to both parties.

“Cleveland-Cliffs sees the USW as a very important partner with a lot more in common with our company than disagreements, and that’s why we can get deals done fairly quickly while others often struggle to find common ground with the union. This agreement provides Cleveland-Cliffs a competitive cost structure for future success, and we look forward to continuing our strong partnership with the USW, providing good paying middle class union jobs to our employees.”
