Manchin Statement on Constellium Contract Vote

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) issued the following statement about the United Steelworkers’ vote on the Constellium contract.
“So many people put in so much hard work to get Constellium’s workers back on the job for a fair wage, and I congratulate them on reaching this agreement today,” Senator Manchin said. “Over the course of these challenging negotiations, my priority has been to bring the parties together, treat everyone with respect and fairness and do our best to get our talented people back to work. I am extremely pleased today to see these West Virginians and this company come together around a fair deal. Today’s agreement means that we can keep good-paying jobs and make the company successful – which will help create even more good jobs down the road. This is truly a great day for Ravenswood, Jackson County and all of West Virginia.”
