The Time is Ripe to Organize, Organize, Organize

Adjunct professors at Point Park University and Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA., recognized they shared common interests and common workplace challenges when their employers tried to reduce their wages and hours. The United Steelworkers were there to provide the needed support to assist them in forming a union. Without the strength of an established union, their employers would have taken advantage of the workers.

In Toronto, Canada, a group of taxi cab drivers were struggling to make a living wage working seven days a week. The system was so terribly broken and the workers were being inhumanley exploited. The drivers realized they needed the support of a powerful union to partner with and that is why they chose the United Steelworkers.
In Tennessee and the southern District 9 states, right to work poses challenges to collective bargaining and organizing. But as our members show, right to work does not mean we can’t have a strong union. In fact, Mable McIntosh and all our USW members in right to work states have proven that some of our strongest locals can be built when all workers stand together and support each other.
