Update Regarding Labor Situation At Our Alliance, Ohio Plant

October 6, 2017

To Our Valued Customers:

We wanted to provide you with an update regarding the labor situation at our Alliance, Ohio plant. We negotiated with the union from mid-July until the members elected to go on strike on August 18, 2017.

After the strike began we initially operated the Alliance plant with salaried employees and a few temporary workers. As soon as it became clear that negotiations could take some time, we quickly brought in a significant number of temporary replacement workers. Over the last few weeks we have been successful at increasing our output of quality DOM and ERW tubing. In addition, with the support of many customers, we have moved a large number of orders to our other plants that have been operating without issue.
