Local 9450 keeps cooking up support for Michigan health care members

On Wednesday, May 26, USW Local 4950 continued its commitment to the members they represent in the health care sector by serving a hot dog luncheon.

Earlier in the COVID-19 pandemic, the local had meals delivered from local restaurants in an ongoing plan to support not only its members who work in health care, but their surrounding communities as well.

Local 4950 is an amalgamated union that represents a diverse group of workers in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan at the Empire Mine, Eastwood Nursing Center, Bell Medical Center, Ishpeming Medical Center, Negaunee Public Schools and Malton Electric.
