CHARLESTON (AP) — Constellium plans to challenge a ruling that awarded unemployment compensation benefits to workers who went on strike at its Ravenswood aluminum plant earlier this year.

Constellium spokeswoman Laura Prisc tells the Charleston Daily Mail that the company will appeal last week's decision by the state Labor Dispute Tribunal. The appeal will go to the Board of Review.

The three-member tribunal said the workers could receive the benefits because there wasn't a work stoppage at the plant during the strike.

The strike began Aug. 5 and ended the following month when United Steelworkers Local 5668 members ratified a five-year contract.

A state government spokeswoman says 609 workers applied for unemployment compensation benefits. The maximum weekly benefit is $424.
