The United Steelworkers (USW), a union that represents 850,000 workers, welcomed the International Trade Commission’s (ITC) decision to continue to investigate antidumping and countervailing duties on welded line pipe from Korea and Turkey, according to the PR Newswire. The USW joined the petition, which alleges dumping margins as high as 221% against Korea and 16% against Turkey. The USW president Leo Gerard called for fair trade to revitalize manufacturing sector. Welded line pine is generally used for transporting oil and natural gas from fields to larger pipelines.
