PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A deal is in place to end the steelworkers’ strike at ATI.

The union says it’s reached a tentative agreement with the company.

Around 1,300 employees at nine facilities have been on strike for the last three months.

Contract talks had hit a wall over healthcare costs.

On Friday night, the union says it had “preserved premium-free health insurance” and secured better pay.

Workers will have to ratify the deal in the coming weeks.
