Supporting Minnesota Ore Operations’ continued leadership


The Iron Ore Alliance is a joint initiative between the United Steelworkers and U. S. Steel.  We are working together to share the story of how important the company’s iron ore business is to Minnesota, because we want it to continue to grow, create more jobs, and find new ways to advance technology and protect the environment.

Iron ore from Minnesota is critical to steelmaking in the United States. U. S. Steel’s Minnesota Ore Operations – consisting of Minntac and Keetac in northeastern Minnesota – is the state’s largest producer of iron ore pellets, the key ingredient in blast furnace-produced steel.

The Iron Ore Alliance is a voice for the 1,845 people who work for Minnesota Ore Operations and helps advocate for the thousands of other jobs that benefit our neighbors, communities, and the entire state.
