Steelmakers experience a fantastic day together

The kind of experience you never forget. That's how it was at the second edition of the annual corporate event called "Where does my father, my mom work?" Family Safety Day, which took place last Saturday, June 1. More than 5000 U. S. Steel Kosice employees together with their families experienced a fantastic day at the steelworks. Sunny weather, an attractive program for large and small, the chance to look around the Company operations, excellent organization - what more could everyone wish for?
The morning and afternoon programs, with Senior Vice President - Europe & Global Operations Services United States Steel Corporation George F. Babcoke also taking part, were officially opened by U. S. Steel Kosice President David J. Rintoul. The main idea of this event, he reminded everyone, is above all to show all our visitors how much attention the Company devotes to employees' safety, and all the things it does to that end.

National Maintenance Forum 2013

Tuesday and Wednesday of last week, May 28 - 29, saw the 13th edition of the annual international conference entitled National Maintenance Forum 2013 take place in the High Tatra mountains. This event is organized by the Slovak Maintenance Society, which is an association of firms supporting development in the fields of technology, quality and safety in maintenance activities. U. S. Steel Kosice has been a founder member since the year 2000, and this year the Company was also the general sponsor of the conference.
It was attended by a record number of participants, more than 220 maintenance specialists from over 40 firms from Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, the Netherlands and Lithuania. Several specialist papers were presented by employees of the Kosice steelmaking company.

U. S. Steel Kosice president meets volunteers

On May 28 U. S. Steel Kosice President David J. Rintoul met eleven volunteers who had taken part in the Company's Volunteer Days for an informal working lunch. This year's event, which took place on May 17 and 18, attracted more than 540 volunteers - Company employees, their family members, and colleagues from the partner organizations. Workers, technicians and managers alike joined in the Steelmakers' Drop of Blood donor drive, the collection of clothes and other requirements for the crisis centers, and in manual work on projects helping out ten different organizations around Kosice. David J. Rintoul acknowledged their efforts and enthusiasm in support of public-benefit activities.
