Here is some year-end followup to a story we covered a fair bit while it was on, the AK steel strike.
The Enquirer (Cincinatti)
The union that represents workers at AK Steel’s Middletown Works is, like the company itself, leaner and focused on surviving in a competitive global economy.
A new union leader takes over next month, with both sides ready to look ahead after a year that began with the company in the midst of a lockout that was then the nation’s longest major work stoppage. The union has also rebuilt itself a little, with new members coming from replacement workers kept after the lockout ended in March.
