(Undated) -- The United Steelworkers say workers have ratified a three-year contract with ArcelorMittal USA that negotiators agreed to last month.

The contract covers nearly 14,000 workers at the company's flat carbon, long carbon and iron ore mining locations in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Louisiana and South Carolina.

ArcelorMittal operates a plant in Steelton, Dauphin County.

The USW says 94 percent of the ballots were in favor of the contract.
