Alcoa and the United Steelworkers have reached a tentative agreement on a new 5 year contract.  It covers 6,100 workers at 10 locations across the country, including Davenport Works in Riverdale, Iowa.  

Alcoa spokesperson John Riches notified the newsroom around 11:15 p.m. Thursday night.  

The website for this negotiation process has a statement from Alcoa's Employee Relations Council.  

“Together with the USW, we have reached a package that is positive for our employees and competitive for our business,” said Bob Wilt, president of Alcoa Global Primary Products and chair of the Company’s Employee Relations Council.

“Our employees are key to our success in driving productivity gains and growth, and this new contract ensures labor stability as we continue the transformation of Alcoa,” said Wilt. “We look forward to a positive outcome following the vote by local unions.”

We are working to get details of the agreement and KWQC's Danielle McCarthy will have that on Quad Cities Today starting at 4:30 a.m. Friday morning.
