U. S. Steel Vice President Human Resources and Administration Susan M. Suver visits Kosice
There was a three-day marathon of working meetings between June 1 to 3 at U. S. Steel Kosice for U. S. Steel Senior Vice President Human
Resources and Administration Susan M. Suver. She came to the Kosice steelworks to introduce the new General Manager Corporate Protection and Fire Safety Robert Rudge, who took up his position on
May 1 of this year, and to familiarize herself with the current situation in our company, in particular the progress being made in the transformation process which is part of the Carnegie, Our
Way initiative. She was joined in her visit by Director Global Remuneration Joelle Preksta. The Senior Vice President Human Resources and Administration also looked round selected operations of
the Coated Products and Tin Mill Division. She was primarily interested in projects already implemented here within the Carnegie, Our Way transformation process.
Family Safety Day attracts almost 4500 visitors
The best part of four and a half thousand steelmakers and their family members came together on May 31 of this year in the grounds of U. S. Steel Kosice
for the third edition of the annual corporate event called "Where does my father, my mom work?" Family Safety Day. The event was officially opened jointly by U. S. Steel Kosice
President George F. Babcoke, KOVO U. S. Steel Kosice Labor Union Council Chairman Mikulas Hintos, and General Manager Occupational Safety and Hygiene and REACH Mark T. Salo. Also taking
part was U. S. Steel Corporation General Manager Occupational Safety and Hygiene Jeffery R. Dierdorf.
The greatest interest was stimulated by the plant tours, whether in buses around the whole steelworks, or walking through beside the hot wide-strip line inside the
Hot Rolling Mill. These opportunities were taken up by almost 2400 employees with their families. There were crowds too around the nearly two dozen static attractions, which grabbed the attention
of younger and older visitors alike. This successful event has more and more supporters and patrons year on year, all to the credit of the almost five hundred organizers from
U. S. Steel Kosice itself and external sources.

The Carpathian Foundation, now celebrating the twentieth anniversary of its establishment, has marked this occasion by issuing a Diploma for Support and Cooperation

which many company employees are actively involved. The award was presented personally by Carpathian Foundation Director Laura Dittel to U. S. Steel Kosice President George F. Babcoke
at a reception on June 5, where the guests of honor were the Ambassador of the USA in Slovakia Theodore Sedgwick and honorary member of the Foundation's Board of Trustees and State Secretary of
the Ministry of Finance SR Vazil Hudak.
Blast Furnaces are soccer champions
The winners of the 53rd edition of the annual soccer championships of U. S. Steel Kosice in 2014 are the team from the Blast Furnaces Division. In the
final match they beat the Power Engineering team convincingly three - nil. The last time the Blast Furnaces players celebrated winning the champions' title was in 2011, when their opponents in
the final were likewise from Power Engineering. The latter team in fact occupied the soccer throne two years in a row, in 2012 and 2013. The match for 3rd place was won by Management, who beat
the Coated Products and Tin Mill squad four - two, successfully defending their bronze podium place from last year.
