U. S. Steel President And CEO Expresses Gratitude For 337 Support


PITTSBURGH, May 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today United States Steel Corporation (NYSE: X) President and CEO Mario Longhi issued the following statement in response to letters of support submitted to the International Trade Commission (ITC) , encouraging the ITC to initiate an investigation into the allegations contained in the company's 337 filing against Chinese steel producers. 

Longhi's statement follows:

"As the International Trade Commission (ITC) moves through the investigation process of the complaint we filed under Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, we are heartened by the show of support from all of our stakeholders.  Our customers and suppliers have sent letters of support to the ITC and the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR).  In addition, the many unions with whom we work side-by-side on a daily basis have shown their support by writing letters and signing petitions.  Local, state and federal elected officials in our operating areas have also shown their encouragement for the filing by letting the ITC and the USTR know how important this investigation is to U. S. Steel, as well as the industry.  Finally, and most importantly, our employees continue to champion our many trade efforts by signing petitions.  This is proof positive that we are right in our pursuit of justice."
