An overwhelming "yes" at ArcelorMittal

Unionized workers voted overwhelmingly in favor of a four-year deal with steelmaker ArcelorMittal.

Just how decisive was it? Out of about 12,000 ballots cast at plants around the country, only 269 "no" votes were recorded, according to the United Steelworkers of America. At the Lackawanna plant, the vote was 126-36 in favor of the contract.

The Lackawanna plant has changed identities over the years, going from Bethlehem Steel to International Steel Group and then to Mittal, prior to Mittal's merger with Arcelor.
