CONTRECOEUR, Que.—ArcelorMittal management and the United Steelworkers-FTQ union, which represents approximately 800 workers at two Quebec facilities, have reached a tentative deal on a new global agreement.

The new contracts will cover operations and maintenance employees at the Contrecoeur East steelworks and bar mill as well as operations and maintenance employees of the Longueuil bar mill. Employees at the company’s Contrecoeur East offices will also be covered under the new arrangement.

Still tentative until union members give the green-light, the proposed deal will be pitched to workers for ratification in the coming days.
