Senator Jay Rockefeller today released the following statement on the Constellium negotiations.
"The negotiations in Ravenswood are deeply important to the workers, their families, and the whole community. I have been engaged with all parties regarding the ongoing negotiations and I have listened to the concerns and hopes of all involved. In the end, I think it is essential for all of the members to have an opportunity to vote up or down on the company's latest proposal. I am hopeful that an agreement can be reached sooner rather than later and think that a vote on the contract - regardless of whether the members decide to ratify it - is necessary to move us towards a resolution."
