Warren Steel employees summoned to meeting

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - A Warren steel maker has summoned it's employees to an afternoon meeting where they could learn more about their future.

United Steelworkers Union sub-district director Gary Steinbeck tells 21 News that he's been told that some employees of Warren Steel Holdings are concerned that they may find out that their benefits could be reduced.

Steinbeck says the workers at the plant are not unionized, but he intends to attend the meeting scheduled for 3 p.m. today at Kent State University's Technology Building in Champion.

Steinbeck says the United Steelworkers Union was interested in unionizing the approximately 100 workers at the plant about a one and a half years ago, but didn't find enough interest from the employees.

After a major investment and renovation in 2007, Warren Steel increased the steel making capacity at what used to be the Copperweld Steel and CSC complex. 

Steinbeck tells 21 News that his union once represented 1,200 workers at Copperweld before the company shut down operations in  2001.

21 News has called Warren Steel Holdings for comment, but the company has not responded.
