It could be time to go back to work at Granite City Steel.
News 4 has learned that United Steel Workers Union officials met with U.S. Steel this morning, who told the union the company will resume operations in Granite City.
The news of a re-opening is not yet being confirmed by U.S. Steel. The union says the company wants to get up and running as they have new orders to fill, but it is unclear when the plant would re-open or how many workers would be re-hired.
At this time last year, U.S. steel employed 2,000 workers in Granite City. Today, that number is less than 100.
News 4's Diana Zoga spoke with the mayor of Granite City, who says he is cautiously optimistic until he hears confirmation from U.S. Steel.
