Pueblo steelworkers approve new contract

Unionized steelworkers have approved a five-year contract with Evraz Rocky Mountain Steel in Pueblo.

Two United Steelworkers locals accepted the contract in Sunday voting. Mike Rodriguez, president of one of the locals, says the vote total won't be announced.

Few details of the contract have been released, but officials say it includes a small wage increase.

The Russian-owned mill has about 1,000 employees, including about 850 union members.
