April Update from SOAR Director Julie Stein

Your Union, Your Voice

Based on this edition’s cover, you’ve probably already concluded that our union is embarking upon another round of the Your Union, Your Voice campaign.

We first launched Your Union, Your Voice in 2019 because we wanted to make sure USW members’ and retirees’ opinions were reflected at every level of our union’s work.

We circulated a union-wide membership survey, and we held 170 town hall meetings. This provided a valuable opportunity for our District Directors, other elected union leaders and staff to hear what was on our members’ and retirees’ minds.

The feedback you provided in your survey responses and at town halls helped shape our work throughout 2020, and continues to inform our efforts as we head into 2022.

Beginning in April, USW Districts will again hold town hall meetings in locations across the United States. All USW members, retirees and families are welcome to attend and be part of these important discussions.

Additionally, we have launched another membership survey so we can know where our members and retirees stand on some of the biggest issues facing working Americans today.

You can access the survey at www.uswvoices.org. Town hall meetings will be posted on this website, publicized through our social media channels and shared by USW Districts. There are already more than 150 town halls scheduled, and you should expect many more to appear on that list by the time you read this.

Our common values like fair pay, safe workplaces, a secure retirement, and vibrant communities connect us as union members.

Please take the time to attend a town hall meeting, participate in this survey and share this information widely throughout your SOAR chapters and fellow USW retirees and families.

Your voice is an essential part of this effort!
