Alcoa has reached tentative agreement with United Steelworkers on a new four-year labour agreement for around 1,700 employees at five American locations.
Union members will now schedule a vote on the proposed contract.
On 15 May, the parties agreed to honour the existing contract, which was set to expire at midnight on that day, in order that negotiations for a new agreement could continue without a work stoppage.
United Steelworkers will now set the date for its members to vote on the proposal, which will cover employees represented by the union at Warrick Operations in Indiana, Massena Operations in New York, Gum Springs in Arkansas, Wenatchee Works in Washington and Point Comfort in Texas.
Most union members eligible to vote on the proposed Master Agreement are employed at Warrick Operations, where the union represents employees at the aluminium smelter and rolling mill, as well as at the Massena Operations smelter.
