Fight Back America is the United Steelworkers (USW) Associate Member Program’s (AMP) Campaign to build power through community action by:
Improving people’s lives; Bringing people together to fight for good jobs, a fair workplace, access to good healthcare, a clean environment; and, strengthening Union ties to all working people and our natural allies, such as students, environmental and human-rights advocates.
The Steelworkers have always fought for social and economic justice. Fight Back America is reaching out beyond the traditional workplaces to anyone, no matter their job or profession. Anyone can join the Steelworkers, even if they don’t have a union where they work in the fight for global justice.
Currently, nearly 20,000 people from all 50 states, Canada and a half dozen other nations have joined the AMP. People have signed up through organized events, media promotions, word of mouth, small group meetings, various grassroots activities, direct mail, the website, and email.
Our members come from a variety of backgrounds. Including:
Former USW members, High school and college students, Democratic, progressive, environmental, human rights and grassroots activists, Educators, lawyers, and elected officials, Blue and White Collar workers, Retired workers, friends and family of Steelworkers.
We believe that a better vision for the world is possible but we must act now for change!
(NOTE: The United Steelworkers Associate Member Program is not a union hiring hall or an apprenticeship program. This program is to encourage information exchange, political activity and creative organizing. It is not a jobs program.)
