U.S. Steel to eliminate 100 jobs.

In McKeesport, PA, members of United Steelworkers Local 1408 agreed to the elimination of 100 jobs at U.S. Steel Corp's National Works to prevent closing of the facility, which produces welded pipe. The settlement also includes a $400 a month pension supplement to ease the impact on the workers by inducing some to retire early.

The parties also agreed to reduce labor costs by essentially combining maintenance and equipment operator job categories, following the lead of the company's other pipe plants in Ohio, Texas, and Alabama.

After the employment cut, the plant will employ 250 members of the union, compared with 4,200 in 1982 and an earlier peak of 5,000.
