High Court Rules Against Ind. Steelworkers on Pay

GARY, Ind. (AP): A group of Indiana steelworkers is disappointed that the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled against an attempt to win pay for the time it takes to put on and take off protective gear.
The lawsuit was filed by workers from U.S. Steel's Gary Works, arguing their work day was extended by up to two hours because of the time it takes to get dressed with flame-retardant jackets and other items and then travel to their work stations.
The Supreme Court was unanimous Monday in ruling in favor of the company.
U.S. Steel says the decision reaffirmed its approach of negotiating the matter with the steelworkers union.
Retired steelworker Herbert Harris tells The Times of Munster he wasn't surprised by the ruling but had been hoping for justice.
