SEBREE, Ky. (AP) -  A western Kentucky aluminum smelter and its workers have reached a new, five-year collective bargaining agreement covering about 400 hourly workers.

The Gleaner reported that the deal between Century Aluminum Sebree LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Century Aluminum Co., and the United Steelworkers Local 9443-00 is effective through Oct. 28, 2019.

Sebree's plant manager, Jason Young, says the deal will keep the plant competitive in the aluminum market.

Century acquired the smelter in June 2013 from Rio Tinto Alcan.
