Luxembourg -Negotiations at ArcelorMittal fail -December 14, 2013

After nearly a year of negotiations, reported in this newsletter, the talks between steel giant ArcelorMittal and trade unions have ended without an agreement. Trade unions OBGL and LCGB rejected proposals by ArcelorMittal, which included a three-year freeze on wages, a restructuring of career advancement and the abolition of nine days of annual leave. A last-minute offer of financial compensation for the lost days of annual leave could not save the process and trade unions have made known that they will ballot their members over industrial action. Votes are expected to be held before the end of the year, paving the way for strikes in January.
