U.S. Steel cutting 25 per cent of non-union employees
The beleaguered steel-maker has been hit by a number of factors that have hurt demand and lowered steel prices
PITTSBURGH, Penn.—U.S. Steel says it is cutting 25 per cent of its non-union workforce in North America, or roughly 750 jobs.
The Pittsburgh-based steel producer has about 21,000 employees in North America and about 18,000 are represented by the United Steelworkers.
It is the latest in a series of recent jobs cuts at United States Steel Co., which is struggling with the impact of falling oil prices, increased imports from China and other factors that have hurt demand and lowered steel prices.
