Contact: Joe Smydo,, 412-562-2281

The United Steelworkers (USW) today welcomed the appointment of International President Tom Conway to the White House’s Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations (ACTPN).

“I want to thank President Joe Biden for appointing me to this committee, which counsels his administration on matters affecting hundreds of millions of working people,” Conway said.

“USW members know firsthand the importance of enacting and enforcing trade policies that enable American workers to compete on a level playing field with their counterparts around the world,” added Conway. “I’m honored to safeguard and advance their interests as a member of ACTPN.”

Working closely with the U.S. Trade Representative, ACTPN members representing labor, business and other fields provide guidance during negotiations for new trade agreements and help monitor trade pacts already in place. 

“Good trade policy grows middle-class jobs and protects national security,” Conway said. “I will use my voice on ACTPN to help President Biden achieve these goals crucial to the nation’s future.”

The USW represents 850,000 men and women employed in metals, mining, pulp and paper, rubber, chemicals, glass, auto supply and the energy-producing industries
