COLBERT COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – The third time is the charm.  Union workers have approved a new five-year contract with one of the Shoals’ largest employers.

Steelworkers Local 200 voted Wednesday to approve a labor agreement with Wise Alloys.
There are 419 steelworkers who work at the Muscle Shoals aluminum manufacturer.

Wise Alloys leaders say they have been negotiating with union leaders since the two previous tentative agreements were not ratified by union workers earlier this month.

Wise Alloys has long-term contracts with Coca Cola and Anheuser-Busch.
