Steel Workers Union calls strike set for midnight off after coming to agreement with Ambrose Steel Company.
Clyde Parris, president of Ambrose Steel Company, and Charles Pointer, president of United Steelworkers Local 923, made a joint announcement after reaching a collective bargaining agreement. As a consequence, they called off the strike that was planned to start at midnight tonight. About 5oo workers would have participated and thus stopped production at Ambrose.
Parris said the contract includes “substantial wage agreement”. Members of the union will be informed about exact terms of the agreement tonight at a meeting. They will vote on the contract next week. Pointer states the contract is “the best we can get out of the company.”
