Accident at AK Steel is revisited

We’ve been watching this labour action more closely than some, partly because the AK workers have their own web site where you can watch their side of it develop, and partly because they wrote me and alerted me to their web site.

And of course, we always are interested in safety in the steel workplace issues.

Gilgrist, Cincinnati area director for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, said Wednesday his office is looking into the training of the temporary workers who have operated the mill since the company locked out members of Armco Employees Independent Federation on Feb. 28 in a contract dispute.
