U.S. Steel to Cut Jobs

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of workers at a Gary steel mill could lose their jobs. Our partners at The Times of Northwest Indiana report U.S. Steel plans to close the coke-making plant at Gary Works in May. The report says the move would displace 300 workers who bake coal into fuel for steelmaking.

A spokesperson tells the publication, the steelmaker "plans to talk with affected workers and the United Steelworkers union about whether they will be transferred or laid off."
