Alcoa and the United Steelworkers Union have come to a tentative agreement, Alcoa announced Tuesday.
The new plan is good for employees and meets cost concerns Alcoa faced, Mick Wallis, president of Alcoa North American Rolled Products, said on the company's negotiations website.
"We have spent the last two weeks working through some tough issues, and feel that this tentative agreement creates a future for good paying jobs at these plants," said Wallis, who also chairs Alcoa's employee relations council. "We hope for a successful outcome after the local unions have had the opportunity to talk to employees."
