A proposed contract covering around 700 union workers at an aluminum rolling mill in Ravenswood is up for a vote this week.

Media outlets report that United Steelworkers Local 5668 is holding informational meetings for members Wednesday on Constellium Rolled Products' contract offer.
 
Union workers will vote on the proposed contract Thursday and Friday.
 
The old contract expired at midnight on July 15.
 
Local 5668 President Jason Miller says in a posting on the union's website that it's being extended day-to-day.
 
A strike vote will be held during Wednesday's meetings.
 
Ravenswood Mayor Michael Ihle says the city is encouraging the union and the company to agree to a deal that's fair for both sides.
 
The mill is Jackson County's largest employer, with about 1,000 workers.
