LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)- Arconic officials say the company is working on a new tentative agreement for its employees 'that allows our business to grow.'
Arconic and United Steelworkers (USW) are negotiating a new labor contract. The deadline for that contract was 11:59 p.m. Wednesday night.
Just hours before the current labor agreements were set to expire, negotiations stalled.
A temporary deal was made, with both parties agreeing to continue working under the current terms of their contracts while discussions continue.
News 18 spoke with Arconic's Communications Manager, Cary Dell, who said the company is working to achieve a fair contract for its employees.
Dell said contract negotiations will continue without a set deadline.
He also commented on Wednesday's rally, saying "steelworkers are free to voice their opinion."
