Decision close on Arrium worker pay cuts

South Australian workers at troubled steelmaker Arrium are expected to decide whether to take a pay cut as negotiations with the administrator come to a close.

A spokesman for administrator KordaMentha has confirmed a decision should be reached on Wednesday afternoon if the talks run to schedule.

In July, KordaMentha proposed a 12 per cent pay cut for workers as part of a three-year pay reduction strategy, and the Australian Workers' Union countered by offering a 7.5 per cent cut.
