Unionized workers at ArcelorMittal's Mont-Wright iron ore mine in northern Quebec gave the steelmaker, the world's largest, a 72-hour strike notice after rejecting the company's contract offer, the United Steelworkers union said.
The union has concerns with wages, pensions, sub-contracting and lower pay for workers at the company's nearby smaller mine, Lemieux said.
A strike would affect the large open pit Mont-Wright mine, a railroad link to port, a processing plant in Port Cartier and the smaller Fire Lake mine. ■
