MEADVILLE, Pa. (AP) - A union will vote next week on a tentative two-year agreement with Western Pennsylvania tool maker Channellock Inc.

The Meadville Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1Aj4O8H ) members of United Steel Workers Local 1917-3 will vote on the deal Monday.

The union represents about 300 of the 400 employees at Channellock’s two plants in the Meadville area.

Its previous deal with the company was to expire at midnight Wednesday, but both sides agreed to extend it until Feb. 20.

Channellock has been headquartered in Meadville, about 40 miles south of Erie, since 1904.

The family owned company is known for its namesake blue-grip pliers.
