Luxembourg -Conciliation still yields no deal at ArcelorMittal -October 18, 2013

Negotiations between ArcelorMittal and trade unions LCGB and OGBL that went into conciliation this summer (see July/August newsletter) have still not yielded any results. The conciliation process was scheduled to be finalised by 21 November, at which point “failed” negotiations can be declared, opening the door for industrial action. In the third meeting, trade unions have allowed ArcelorMittal to bring in new proposals, but also warned that the deal could not be finalised before 21 November as foreseen. Unions have requested an extension of the terms of the current collective agreement in order to continue bargaining, which ArcelorMittal has denied until now.
