It is often recognized that an employee opposing summary judgment must do more than say “not so” and that successfully opposing such a motion requires more than just peripheral disputes as to the core decision.

William Coe, an African-American, is a long-term employee at U.S. Steel’s Fairless Hills, Pa., plant. He was elected president of the local steelworkers’ union in mid-2009.

A different agreement preceded the 2008 contract.
