In the days before the United Steelworkers’ last Convention, unemployment was low in the United States and Canada. The countries’ economies were humming. The United Steelworkers union was negotiating what would be some of the best agreements ever with steelmakers. It was the summer of 2008.
The delegates to the 2011 International Convention received flash drives with material and information about various United Steelworker departments and allied organizations. For those who may have lost or misplaced the flash drive or for those who may have erased the information, all is not lost.
