Tentative agreements were negotiated by the United Steelworkers (USW) at Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., steelmaker Algoma on May 12.

"The steelworkers and our members in Sault Ste. Marie have stood in solidarity since 2015 to demand fairness and dignity for working families affected by Algoma's bankruptcy protection process," said Marty Warren, USW Ontario director.

The former Essar Steel Algoma filed for creditor protection under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA) in November 2015.

The USW is the largest private sector union in both Canada and North America with more than 225,000 members in Canada and more than 800,000 members continent-wide.
