Why USW Cares


For many Steelworkers, lending a helping hand is part of being a member of our union. Outside of work, our members are known for their quiet generosity in their neighborhoods. We aim to celebrate locals and members who donate their time, money or goodwill to assist others. It may be a food collection or a children’s party. Maybe it is assisting the elderly and shut-ins or feeding those in need. Whatever it is, we want to tell your story. This isn’t about bragging for recognition, but to show how we are a union that works in our communities.

United Steelworkers are dedicated to creating unity and strength for workers. Our members are leaders in their communities and strive to help others in need. These unsung heroes deserve recognition for their commitment to creating a better tomorrow through outstanding service. Nominate a USW member for a Jefferson Award for Public Service.
