[Excerpt] This early warning meeting began the labor and community struggle in Hammond, Indiana to save LaSalle Steel, a 350-worker specialty products steel mill owned by Texas-based Quanex Corporation. A year later, the plant would expand rather than shut down, the union at LaSalle would be stronger than ever, and the labor-community coalition led by the Calumet Project for Industrial Jobs would celebrate its biggest anti-shutdown victory yet.
