American Roots, American Heroes: Maine clothing maker now making medical supplies

When American Roots owner Ben Waxman asked his workers, members of USW Local 366, who would be willing to keep coming to work to make medical masks and other critically needed supplies, every single hand went up. When he needed help converting the Maine sew room into socially distanced work stations, laid-off IATSE stage hands showed up on a Saturday to build it.

Goodyear: #USWMade NASCAR Tires

Inside every Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series tire is a name — the name of a Steelworker from Local Union 2L in Akron, Ohio. For 69 years, 255 of our brothers and sisters have made these Goodyear tires by hand, ensuring every tire shipped out of the plant is not just a quality product, but one that will keep NASCAR drivers safe during races as they hit speeds exceeding 200 miles per hour.

The Art of Craftsmanship

Our brothers and sisters at ‪#‎USW‬ Local Union 6346 at Wendell August Forge in Grove City, PA, have created a limited edition Women of Steel plate that is from beginning to end, entirely hand-crafted, numbered and union stamped by USW members using union-made materials from Alcoa. The decorative plate reads: “Women of Steel – May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them.” For a limited time, this plate can be purchased for $55.00: ‪#‎USWWorks‬
