The United Steelworkers say that workers have ratified a three-year contract with ArcelorMittal USA that negotiators agreed to last month.
The contract covers nearly 14,000 workers at ArcelorMittal USA's flat carbon, long carbon and iron ore mining locations in Georgetown as well as Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and Louisiana.
The USW says in a statement released Thursday that 94 percent of the ballots were in favor of the contract.
ArcelorMittal said in a statement last month that it was pleased to have reached a "fair and equitable outcome without disruption to our business operations."
