Alcoa, UAW Fail To Reach Labor Agreement

Alcoa said late Monday it had not reached an agreement with UAW Local 1050 on a new labor contract. Workers walked off the job Monday night.

Aluminum manufacturer Alcoa said late Monday it has not reached an agreement with United Auto Workers Local 1050 on a new labor contract, and workers walked off the job Monday night.

The Local UAW covers about 830 workers at the Cleveland Works plant.

Following the walkout, Alcoa implemented a business continuation plan to operate as much of the manufacturing process as possible.

In a statement, Alcoa said the Cleveland Works facility is challenged by rising healthcare costs, increased utility costs and low-cost competitors.

Alcoa has setup a website with negotiation information, which can be found by clicking here.
