USS to idle Lone Star plant
U. S. Steel advised employees that Lone Star Tubular Operations in Lone Star, Texas, and Lorain Tubular Operations in Lorain, Ohio, will indefinitely idle operations due to challenging market conditions and high import levels. The company has issued Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) notices related to the indefinite idling at each facility. The WARN notices advise that layoffs related to the adjusted operations could take effect in as little as 60 days.
The adjustment of operations has the potential to impact approximately 600 employees at Lone Star Tubular Operations.
