In a regulatory filing from Friday evening, U.S. Steel disclosed that on August 17, United States Steel Corporation, acted to effectuate a hard freeze of benefits accrued under each of the following plans effective as of December 31, 2015: (i) the United States Steel Corporation Plan for Employee Pension Benefits and each provision, rule part, plan or program thereunder as applicable to non-union employees; (ii) the United States Steel Corporation Non Tax-Qualified Pension Plan; and (iii) the United States Steel Corporation Executive Management Supplemental Pension Program.
