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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
