There shall be no discrimination in applying wages, conditions of work, work rules and other phases of labor relations.

Each employee hired after the Effective Date of this Agreement shall, as a condition of employment, on the 31st day following the beginning of such employment, acquire and maintain membership in the Union.
On or before the last day of each month, the Union shall submit to the Company a list showing the name and check or badge number of each employee who shall have become a member of the Union in good standing since the last previous list of such members was furnished to the Company. The Company shall continue to rely upon the membership list that has been submitted to it by the Union subject to revision by the addition of new members and deletion of the names of employees who have withdrawn from membership during such period.
For purpose of this Agreement, “Membership” shall be, at a minimum, “Core Membership” in the Union. The foregoing provisions shall be effective in accordance and consistent with applicable provisions of federal and state law.

Parties recognize that a management employee may need to assist a bargaining unit employee from time to time to start-up, trouble shoot, keep operations going and otherwise assist where the normal operator or bargaining unit person is working during this time and has not been replaced by the management employee. Management employees may also perform work that is customarily performed by production or maintenance employees for the purpose of instruction, experimental work and in case of emergencies.

For purposes of overtime calculation, the employee’s time away from the plant to seek emergency care shall not be considered time worked.
Section 5 - Jury Duty
An employee who is required to perform jury duty shall be excused from work for the days on which he/she serves jury duty.
An employee shall notify the Company within two (2) working days of his receipt of such notice. If the employee must then call before the date required for jury duty, he/she must notify the Company as soon as his/her status is

determined and the possible extent of such service. If an employee is dismissed from jury duty without reporting for jury duty, the employee must report to work as scheduled.
For each day of jury duty, when the employee would have worked a regularly scheduled day, the employee shall receive the difference between the payment received for such service and eight (8) hours pay at his/her straight time hourly rate provided the employee provided notice as required above. Such pay shall be based on the number of days the employee would have worked had he not be performing jury duty.
The pay differential specified above will be limited to one period of jury duty annually, not to exceed fifteen (15) working days per year, and shall not exceed pay for forty (40) hours of differential pay during any one week.

Conditions of Allowances
When in its sole judgment, the Company decides to permanently close the plant and terminate the employment of individuals, an employee whose employment is terminated shall be entitled to a severance allowance in accordance with and subject to the following provisions.
Before the Company shall finally decide to permanently close the plant, it shall give the Union, when practicable, advance written notification of its intent. Such notification shall be given sixty (60) days prior to the proposed closure date, and the Company will thereafter meet with appropriate Union representatives in order to provide them with an opportunity to discuss the Company’s proposed course of action. Upon conclusion of such meetings, which in no event shall be less than thirty (30) days prior to the proposed closure date, the Company shall advise the Union of its final decision. The final closure decision shall be the exclusive function of the Company.

The Company acknowledges its obligations under the 1989 WARN Plant Closing law.
To be eligible for a severance allowance an employee shall have accumulated three (3) or more years of continuous service as computed in accordance with Article IX - Seniority, of this Agreement.

10 years or more

Calculation of Allowance

Non-Duplication of Allowance
Severance allowance shall not be duplicated for the same severance, whether the other obligation arises by reason of contract, law, or otherwise. If the individual is or shall become entitled to any discharge, liquidation, severance, or dismissal allowance, or payment of similar kind by reason of any law of the United States, or any other states, districts, or territories thereof, the total amount of such payments shall be deducted from the severance allowance to which the individual may be entitled under this section, or any payment made by the Company under this section, or any payment made by the Company under this section may be offset against such payments. Statutory unemployment compensation payments shall be excluded from the non-duplication provision of this section.
Payment of Allowance
Payment shall be made in a lump-sum at the time of termination. Acceptance of severance allowance shall terminate employment and continuous service for all purposes of this Agreement.
Section 1 - Workweek/Workday
The normal workweek and workday shall be established by the Company.
Section 2 - Work Stations
Employees are expected to be at their work stations at the start of their shifts and remain at their work stations until the end of their shifts. All employees, at the completion of their respective scheduled shifts, shall not stop their activity and leave their work stations until relieved by the next shift employees, unless otherwise directed by their respective supervisors.
When an employee’s regular permanent shift will be changed for any reason the Company shall provide at least five (5) calendar days notice of the change in assignment. When the change in shift assignment is due to unanticipated events, the employee affected by the shift change will be given a three (3) day notice of said shift change, unless in the case of an unforeseeable emergency.
Section 3 - Continuous Process
The Company may exercise its right to implement Continuous Process Operations as a measure to utilize the full productive capacity of the plant and equipment. Continuous Process is a work schedule that contemplates up to twenty-one (21) turns per week.
The Company may implement Continuous Process operations on a plant-wide basis or for specific operations based upon operational needs.
Section 4 - Overtime Payment
The rules for the payment of overtime for Regular and Continuous Process Operations are defined below:
Overtime pay at the rate of one and one-half (1 ½) times the normal hourly rate shall be paid for all hours worked in excess of forty (40) in any workweek.

Scheduled absences, which include authorized vacation, jury duty leave, and funeral leave, will count toward the forty (40) hours in any one workweek.
Employees who are scheduled to work or who are notified to report and do report, and less than four (4) hours of work is available, shall be given four (4) hours work in scheduled classification or, in the event that no work whatsoever is available, shall be paid a minimum of four (4) hours at that rate. Payment of overtime premium shall be made only for the hours actually worked.
Section 5 - Overtime Work
When overtime work is required and a need exists for the Company to request specific employees for overtime work in order to maintain flexibility in equipment utilization, the following procedure will be used:
When an employee fails to report to work as scheduled, the Company may hold over qualified employee(s) from the shift that is ending, such employee(s) will be asked to stay over into the next shift by order of seniority. If there are no volunteers from the prior shift, the junior qualified employee(s) on the shift will be required to stay. If the shift assignment is for eight (8) hours, the additional assignment may be up to four (4) hours unless the employee agrees to stay longer. If the shift assignment is for twelve (12) hours, the additional assignment may be for up to two (2) hours unless the employee agrees to stay longer. In no case will an employee work more than sixteen (16) hours.
If it is necessary to call qualified employees, they will be called in order of seniority. If insufficient employees become available through the offer system, then the junior-most employee shall become obliged to work as necessary.
Overtime will be allocated by seniority within department or job class. In the event no employee in the relevant job class and department accepts the overtime, the opportunity to work overtime will be offered to all employees in the plant and will be awarded to the senior qualified employee. In the event no employee is awarded the overtime after the opportunity has been offered on a plant-wide basis, the most junior qualified employee in the relevant department and job class will be obligated to work the overtime.
Section 6 - Overtime Performance
The Union agrees that all employees will cooperate in the performance of overtime work and there shall be no concerted action by it or its members to discourage such overtime performance.
The Company desires not to engage in overtime balancing. If excessive overtime accumulation by some employees becomes a problem, the Union will address it as an internal Union affair by means of persuasion of the proper employees to accept or reject overtime offers accordingly. The Company does however reserve the right to balance overtime as the Company deems necessary.
Section 7 - Non Availability of Work
In the event work cannot be provided because of strikes, work stoppages in connection with labor disputes, mechanical or electrical failures, failures of utilities, Acts of God (fire, lightning, storms, cyclones, floods, etc.) Section 6 shall not apply. Supervisors shall make reasonable efforts to inform employees work cannot be provided, but in failing to do so, the Company shall not be liable for any pay or guarantee. If some alternative work is available, the Company shall endeavor to utilize whoever is available, but shall not be liable in these situations, for any pay or guarantee for those who are not available or who do not work.
Section 8 - Reporting to Work
Recognizing mutual responsibility in report-off practice, each employee must report off in accordance with the Company rules and regulations.
In the case of an unreported absence of three (3) or more days, the employee will be considered as having quit his job. If an employee fails to report his/her absence he/she shall not be arbitrarily treated under this Article if he/she is able to furnish satisfactory evidence that such failure resulted from illness, accident, death in his/her immediate family, Act of God, or other good causes, which prevented him/her from making such report. Absenteeism will be handled as described in the Absentee Policy.
An employee reporting late for work will be paid commencing with the ring-in time rounded to the nearest tenth (1/10) of an hour.

Bristol Metals, LLC    Attendance Policy
Every employee has the obligation of reporting to work punctually, in accordance with his/her work schedule. Excessive absences, tardiness and early quits have a detrimental affect on productivity, morale, and the Company’s ability to meet its commitments to its customers.
Every employee is required to notify the Company, specifically a Department Supervisor as far in advance as possible, or as otherwise directed, when he/she is to be absent for a scheduled shift or a part thereof.
Absent - Failing to report to work on any scheduled workday, including scheduled overtime.
Tardy/Late - Reporting to work after a scheduled starting time, or failing to clock in at the beginning of one’s shift. See Item 10 under “Program,” below.
Early Quit - Leaving work before the scheduled ending time. In accordance with Company work rules, an employee must obtain his/her supervisor’s approval before leaving on an Early Quit.
Weekend - Days on which an employee is not scheduled to work. Generally, Saturday and Sunday, but may fall on other days, depending on the employee’s schedule.
No Call/No Show - Failure to report off from work prior to the start of the employee’s scheduled shift (unless a documented Emergency prevents such a report possible) will be counted as one absence.
On a rolling twelve-month period, each employee (except probationary employees) shall be allotted the following:
4 incidents/occurrences for Absences.
5 incidents/occurrences for Lates/Early Quits. There is no difference between a Late and an Early Quit.

Probationary employees will receive a pro-rated allotment at the end of their probation periods.
Employees do not receive any allotment of Absences or late arrivals/early quits during the probation periods. The Company does not need to apply the normal disciplinary steps indicated in this policy for employees during the probation period.

Absence from 3 or more consecutively scheduled days is considered one incident if the illness/injury is verified by a doctor, in writing. If it is not, then each day will be considered an incident. Item #5 below applies.
Work scheduled outside of an employee’s regular schedule including, but not limited to overtime, will be considered regularly scheduled time if the employee has agreed in advance to work during this time.
An employee off for 4 or more consecutively scheduled work days due to an illness or injury must provide a release from his/her attending physician in order to return to work. Employees will not be permitted to return to work without a doctor’s release.
Partial days shall be included, for example:
If a person leaves early, then reports off for the next 3 consecutively scheduled days due to the same illness/injury, it will be considered 4 consecutive days. The same applies if a person is absent for 3 consecutive days, reports to work on the 4th day, but leaves early due to the same illness/injury. With a physician’s verification, this time will be recorded as one occurrence.
Employees who report to work and leave less than halfway through the scheduled shift shall be charged for an Absence occurrence, not an Early Quit.
Absences separated by a weekend are not considered consecutive days unless verified by an employee’s attending physician.

Time off for certain events such as Jury Duty, Funeral Leave, Military Leave, Union Business, Family Medical Leave, Sick & Accident and Worker’s Compensation will not be counted, for the purpose of discipline against an employee provided that the appropriate documentation is provided in a timely manner.
Non-probationary employees shall receive eight (8) hours paid personal day for three (3) months perfect attendance. Perfect attendance will be defined as an employee who has not missed work for any reason other than Jury Duty, Military Leave, Funeral Leave and Union business. Said paid time off shall be paid at the employee’s normal pay rate on the date such days are used. Such days will be considered as time worked for all purpose. Any unused Personal/Sick days cannot be carried over to a subsequent calendar year and will not be paid out unless denied.
An employee who is one occurrence away from termination, whether for Lates/Early Quits or Absences may convert one unused Absence occurrence to two unused Late/Early Quit occurrences or two Late/Early Quit occurrences to one Absence occurrence. The employee may make one such conversion per year.
An employee may, at the Company’s discretion, make up lost time for pay purposes. He/she will, however, be charged for the occurrence unless advance arrangements are made in accordance with Item#11, below.
It is each employee’s responsibility to clock in/out properly. An employee, who for any reason does not clock in/out, must properly complete an Employee Time Verification Form. An employee who does not clock out but completes the Employee Time Verification Form shall not be charged an occurrence. If, however, an employee’s failure to clock in/out becomes habitual, he/she will be subject disciplinary action. The determination of habitual violations shall be at the discretion of the Company.
Verbal, email or voicemail verifications do not qualify as proper verification. Only the completion of the Employee Time Verification Form is acceptable.
Arrangements may be made for a temporarily modified schedule, as follows:
An employee may be authorized to start a shift early in order to leave early or start a shift late and work late.
The arrangements must be made in seventy-two (72) hours in advance and have the appropriate documentation which must be received by Human Resources in advance of the schedule modification.
It is the employee’s responsibility to ensure that the proper documentation is completed, signed and submitted to Human Resources in a timely manner.
An employee who fails to clock in at the beginning of his/her shift will be considered late. If the employee personally reports to a member of management that he/she has not clocked in, and does so before the scheduled starting time for his/her shift, he/she will not be charged with a Late occurrence. The management employee to whom such notice is given must notify Human Resources within 24 hours. If no management employee is available, such notice may be given by voice mail at extension 202. The employee leaving such voice mail should note the time he or she is calling. The time of the call will be confirmed by the voice mail system, which places a time stamp on all messages.
Employees will be subject to disciplinary action under this policy as follows.
A.    Verbal Warning - When employee is one occurrence from reaching his/her allotted limit.
B.    Written Warning - When employee reaches his/her allotted limit.
C.    Termination - When employee exceeds his/her allotted occurrences.
Four (4) occurrences within a 30 day period shall be cause for termination regardless of previously issued warning(s) and regardless of whether the incidents are for Absences, Lates or Early Quits.
The Company and the Union may amend this policy by mutual agreement.

Reason for the Profit-Sharing Plan
The manufacture and sale of stainless steel pipe, tube and fittings is a highly competitive business with many domestic as well as foreign producers. Because worldwide productive capacity is much greater than demands, prices for these products will continue to be under pressure. Under these conditional, the only way we can produce profits is by working together to control costs and operate efficiently. It is hoped that this profit sharing plan (“Plan”), which is effective only during the term of this agreement, will:
Motivate every employee eligible under the Plan to improve his or her performance and help in every way they can to produce profits.
Reward employees for their efforts by paying them a share of Munhall profits as additional remuneration over and above their wages and salaries.

When the Distribution Will be Made
Distributions are payable on a quarterly basis based on Adjusted EBITDA. Paid two months in arrears (Q1 payable in May, Q2 payable in August, Q3 payable in November, Q4/Total Year payable in February).

There have been no costly incidents > $20k during the quarter, AND
Production and Shipping Goals were met during the quarter.
Step 2: The Bonus pool will be calculated as 3% of quarterly Adjusted EBITDA less the amount allocated for any disqualified employees, and
Step 3: 75% of the Q1, Q2, Q3 and Q4 bonus pool will be distributed quarterly with 25% of the bonus pool will be held back, and
Step 4: The 25% hold back for each quarter will be paid in February in the year following the end of the fourth quarter of the current hold back year if Munhall Operations meets at least 75% of the total year Adjust EBITDA target.
