Steel maker ArcelorMittal idling Cleveland plant

Steel maker ArcelorMittal plans to suspend operations at its Cleveland site in early May amid a declining market for steel and lay off about 700 more workers for an undetermined length of time, a local union official said Saturday.

About 450 of the roughly 1,400 members of the United Steelworkers of America Local 979 already have been laid off in the past three months, Local 979 vice president Dan Boone said.
