YORKVILLE, Ohio (AP) — The sale of two RG Steel plants in eastern Ohio has workers wondering what happens next.

As a result of the company's federal bankruptcy case, one of its plants in Martins Ferry was auctioned Tuesday. And the Yorkville plant is being sold to a partnership of companies based in Pittsburgh and South Korea.

WTOV-TV ( ) reports that local steelworkers are now trying to figure out if they'll be heading back to work. Local union president Jerry Conners says he's cautiously optimistic.

Other RG Steel plants have not been sold. The plants are remnants of the once-great Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel Corp.
