Senators Sherrod Brown and Joe Manchin Visit Weirton Facility
Senators Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) met with Cleveland-Cliffs CEO Lourenco Goncalves to tour Cleveland-Cliffs Weirton tin mill in Weirton, WV. Both senators have supported Cliffs’ and the USW’s antidumping petitions against unfairly traded foreign tin and chromium coated sheet products in the U.S. market, which have adversely affected domestic operations.“The visit by Senator Brown and Senator Manchin to Cleveland-Cliffs Weirton is a clear demonstration that the United States will not forfeit its ability to produce tin plate,” said Lourenco Goncalves. “Today, the Senators witnessed firsthand the ability of Cleveland-Cliffs and its USW workforce to produce the high-quality tin mill products that the U.S. market demands. All we require is the ability to compete in a market free from the threat of dumped and subsidized imports. With the strong support of influential elected leaders like Senator Manchin and Senator Brown, I know we will prevail in addressing unfairly traded imports and ensuring a bright future for Weirton and its workers.“
