Child has cancer and National Grid cuts off health insurance

Imagine your sick child is scheduled for his first chemo treatment and you are literally blocked from going to work by your long-time employer, who stops your family’s health care coverage. This is what National Grid is doing to our brothers and sisters in Massachusetts. Join us in telling National Grid that it’s shameful, immoral and that the lockout needs to end: http://usw.to/nationalgrid. #EndTheLockOut #USWUnity

The Memorial Day Massacre

This clip from the USW’s 70th Anniversary celebration relives the “Memorial Day Massacre” that occurred on May 7, 1937. Several thousand workers who were trying to form a union had walked off their jobs in what is known as the “Little Steel Strike.” On the South Side of Chicago, striking workers rallied with their families and community members, then marched to peacefully picket Republic Steel. Police, out in full force, fired shots. Ten workers were dead. Thirty others were shot. Share this post to help us honor the 10 who lost their lives so that we could have the rights we still fight for today: Hilding Anderson, Alfred Causey, Leo Francisco, Earl J. Handley, Otis A. Jones, Sam R. Popovich, Kenneth Reed, Joseph Rothmund, Anthony Taglieri and Lee Tisdale. #1u #NeverForget
