Strengthening Our Union Through Retiree Involvement

Since 1985, the Steelworkers Organization of Active Retirees (SOAR) has been crucial to the USW’s mission. By defending Social Security, Medicare, and Steelworker pension plans, SOAR supports vital programs and advocates for USW retirees, spouses and families.

Join SOAR today!

In 2019, SOAR's by-laws were amended to welcome any like-minded individual aged 45 or over who agrees with and supports the guiding principles and programs of the organization and our union.
