ArcelorMittal starts legal actions to unblock Liege plant - report.

(SeeNews) - Nov 28, 2012 - The management of steel major ArcelorMittal (MCE:MTS) has started legal actions to release goods at its plant in Liege, Belgium, which are blocked by trade union protests, French business daily L'Echo reported.

The industry action started last week when, after 13 months of negotiations, the failure of the social dialogue became a fact. The management decided then to start the dismissal procedure on Monday, although there was no deal with the trade unions.

In October 2011, ArcelorMittal announced plans to permanently stop its liquid steel production units around Liege, citing the slow recovering steel demand in Europe.
