Strike Averted In Lone Star

A strike has be averted for now, as a tense temporary agreement has been struck between union workers and an East Texas steel plant. Just before a midnight deadline Saturday night, Lone Star Steel management in Lone Star, and United Steel Workers of America local-4134, agreed to "keep working".

This, while negotiations continue on a new union contract. Union members are asking for better salary and medical benefits. If no agreement is reached, a strike is still possible.
