BLADE NEWS SERVICES

PITTSBURGH — U.S. Steel Corp. and the United Steelworkers have reached a tentative agreement on a three-year contract covering more than 16,000 workers at domestic facilities.

Details of the contract were not announced. The union said members will vote after reviewing details over the next few weeks. The two sides had been negotiating since June on a contract to replace the existing pact, which expired Saturday.

The company said the talks covered employees at flat-rolled and iron ore mining facilities as well as tubular operations in Lorain, Ohio, and Fairfield, Ala.
