Aurubis labor deal ratified Saturday

Aurubis

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Members of United Steelworkers Local 593 have ratified a contract with Aurubis.

Workers had picketed outside the company’s Sayre Street facility early Tuesday after the original contract was set to expire.  Instead it was extended 48 hours and a deal was reached before the new deadline.

The announced vote was 281-154, nearly a 2-1 majority in favor.

The company works with metals, including copper.
