The United Steelworkers (USW) has decided to open the first day of the Regional Health, Safety and Environment Conference being held in Pittsburgh Monday May 16 to all union members. There will be no registration fee.
The union-only day will feature an opening address by USW International President Leo W. Gerard, a session by the education department on the economic issues confronting us, an address by Peg Seminario, health and safety director of the national AFL-CIO, on how the assault on union rights impacts safety and health, and workshops devoted to strategies for fighting back. There will also be a chance to express your support for USW public employees, whose conference is also in Pittsburgh that week. The free registration is for the one day only. The rest of the weekly scheduled is not included.
The session begins at 9 AM and ends no later than 5. Registration will be at the door.
