ArcelorMittal owns and operates the Minorca Mine north of Virginia (formerly Inland Steel). This is one of the smaller mines on the Range, but produces a taconite largely for the domestic steel market. The union has presented an offer and expects a response this morning during another negotiating session.
Yesterday, Steelworkers at Minorca held a "practice" picket, demonstrating their willingness to strike if a deal is not found.
