The USW has been in the forefront of legislative and policy battles, advancing the cause of our members and defending our members' rights. Just as USW solidarity at the bargaining tables helps to improve our jobs, USW members are working together to stop the continued assault on working families through the use of policy and legislative action at all levels of government.

The USW Legislative and Policy Department coordinates these actions by lobbying in Congress, testifying before congressional committees, and working with the Executive Branch. We monitor federal and state legislation and push government agencies to enact and enforce regulations that benefit our members, their families, and their industries. We also work closely with our Rapid Response Department to strategize the grassroots activities that have made the USW a force in Washington, DC and statehouses across the country.
