Steelworkers in Nanticoke like the deal.
CBC is reporting that United Steelworkers Local 8782 has signed a letter of support in favour of Bedrock Industries to buy the Lake Erie U.S. Steel Canada plant.
The steelmaker has been under court-supervised creditor protection since 2014.
Local 8782 president Bill Ferguson says “they are moving forward” but maintains “there are still issues that have to be sorted out.”
U.S. Steel Canada and the provincial government announced a memorandum of understanding in September.
Parent company U.S. Steel also signed an MOU earlier this month.
