MASSENA, New York (WWNY) - The United Steelworkers union has approved a tentative agreement it reached with Alcoa last week.

That’s according to union representatives.

The three-year deal includes a 13.5% total wage increase and no increaes to health care.

United Steelworkers represents 800 Alcoa workers, including 375 in Massena. Most of the rest are in a plant in Indiana.

The agreement avoids a strike, which members authorized at the end of April if negotiations didn’t improve.
