Last week, United Steelworkers (USW) Local 8888 members at Newport News Shipbuilding voted against a new labor contract that was negotiated over the past two months. Work will continue under a contract extension, and the company and USW will continue to honor all current contract terms and conditions as both teams work to reach an agreement on the new one. As the company and union determine next steps, NNS provided information on the main highlights of the company’s offer in a message to employees on Nov. 19.
