NEW HAVEN (AP) — Felman Production LLC and the United Steelworkers have agreed on a new contract at the company's ferroalloys plant near New Haven in Mason County.

Felman announced the agreement with United Steelworkers Local 5171 on Wednesday. It says the 42-month contract will cover more than 215 workers.

The current contract was set to expire early this month.
