Tom H., Scio, OR:

“Local 7150 retired: our local worked for the betterment of our labor force. They supported the labor council, worked with the L&E committee and the young workers program. They established a school ICD to help members learn a skill. They had members participate in political rallies and took the lead in working for better government. It's not enough to say we're union, it takes people to stand together and get behind it.”

Tom L., Auburn, NY:

“I am a proud retiree, USWA Local 3298. in the shop I always promoted the union, if it was an open shop we would have never gotten the great wages and benefits that we all enjoyed which you can raise a family and enjoy life. I urge all you young members to get involved and fight for your livelihood. Stay strong and support your local union. I would like to see all the future retirees enjoy their benefits like we do.”

DJ, Rhinelander, WI:

“Thanks to the USW and Jon Geenan to the hard work they did in the creation of a new specialty paper company. Expera Specialty Solutions only exists because of the work of the USW!!! Without them it is more likely that the Rhinelander and Mosinee mills would be shut down right now.”
