Universal Stainless & Alloy Products Inc., Bridgeville, said it reached a five-year labor agreement with its 235 hourly workers at its subsidiary in western New York.

Employees of Dunkirk Specialty Steel LLC, who are represented by United Steelworkers Local 2693, ratified the agreement on Sunday, the day a contract extension was due to expire. The previous labor pact had expired Oct. 31.

Workers at the specialty steelmaker's other plants in Bridgeville and Titusville, who also are represented by the USW, are covered under separate contracts and not affected by the new contract at the Dunkirk, N.Y. plant.

Universal Stainless employs a total of 730 people, including 340 in Western Pennsylvania.
