    Today in Labor History
    Sept. 18, 1999
    A 20-month illegal lockout of 2,900 Steelworkers members at Kaiser Aluminum plants in three states ends when an arbitrator orders a new contract. The workers walked out over company demands to outsource jobs, limit wage and benefit improvements, increase productivity and lengthen the workday.
