Secretary Ross Statement on USW Ratification of New Contract with US Steel


Today, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross released the following statement on the new 4 year contract ratified yesterday by U.S. Steel and United Steelworkers:

"The new contract between the United Steelworkers and US Steel shows the wisdom of President Donald J. Trump’s trade policies. The winners are not just corporations, but also the average worker. This very fair deal shares the benefits of the tariffs in a way that rewards hard work and investment while also not being unduly inflationary. This is a vision for the US economy we should all support."
