The USW is no stranger to fighting for a more just economy for everyone. It’s in our blood and has been from the day we were formed. It’s why we’re fighting against bad trade agreements and fighting for jobs right now. And, it’s why we’re supporting the 99 percent who have been left behind as the grassroots “Occupy Wall Street” movement grows.
USW International President Leo W. Gerard offered our union’s support last week and since then many other unions have also expressed solidarity. AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said the union movement is “opening arms and hearts” to these brave activists who are fighting for all of us.
Around the nation, Steelworkers and other unions are joining Occupy Wall Street events and lending support to the students, the unemployed and others who are demanding jobs, a fair economy and a better future. We’re opening our union halls, buying pizza, making signs, joining demonstrations and helping out in any way we can.
