If they don't agree to a 2 tier pension like we did they will sit for awhile, and it will all depend on the steel industry and how our startup goes.

Hopefully the market keeps picking up steam and hilton works doesn't have to go through the hardships that 8782 faced.We are all in this together and need to support one another.Big blue is the enemy not our uswa brothers and sisters.

Doubtful that 1005 will "strike". Management (Pittsburgh) will probably pull the plug first,let the lawyers mop up the mess.

hope 1005 can avoid the 2 tier pension but with inco , algoma , & 8782 taking it they;ll well have a hard time keeping the current pension, but on a brighter note talks seem to be going well with the company that took over the bar mills
And then there is this

1005 has always been a principled union, tough and united.
The reality is that as a 'part' of a much larger and ruthless corporation, the amount of clout that 1005 can exercise is diminished.
What evil can USS leverage against this union?
Only one other Canadian local has borne that wrath.
And as a card carrying member of that 'other' union, I hope Rolf can deal these [email protected]@rds yet another lesson.
The economy is now favorable for union principles.
Stay strong ladies and gentlemen!
