New deal reached between Century Aluminum and union workers


HAWESVILLE, Ky (WEHT) – A new labor deal has been reached between Century Aluminum and USW 9423, who represents workers at the Hawesville plant in Hancock County.

Andy Meserve of USW Local 9423 says the deal between their members and the company includes raises of 14 percent over the next five years, pension increases, and a new apprenticeship partnership with OCTC. Meserve called it a fair deal and avoids a repeat of the 2015 lockout after a previous labor deal expired.

Company officials say 60 new jobs will be added at the Hawesville plant.
