 Gov. Tomblin Issues Statement Regarding Constellium

9/15/2012
CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin today issued the following statement regarding the ongoing contract negotiations between Constellium Rolled Products and United Steelworkers Local 5668.

"I am committed to continuing to work with both parties to bring this work stoppage to a conclusion. I encourage international and local union leaders to continue to educate and inform their members about the offer on the table. At the end of the day, it is up to the members to determine whether to accept the current offer. I hope each member carefully weighs this offer and what is in the best interest of themselves and their families. To that end, I encourage the full membership to take an up or down vote on it. I hope that everyone involved understands the hardships this has caused families in the Ravenswood community, and that jobs and economic security are first and foremost on everyone's minds over these next few days."
