Steelworkers have played a key role in a new landmark labour law reform in Quebec banning two-tier pensions. From the Rio Tinto strike to the recent Ciment Lafarge, Resco strikes, through lockouts, lobbying and at all bargaining tables in between, Steelworkers have always been firm on resisting two-tier pensions. It is indeed a victory for workers.

Turn the volume up on this video!!! Locked-out Quebec Steelworkers drove for more than 15 hours from Bécancour to be heard by Alcoa shareholders and to denounce an “absurd” lockout. Five representatives of the Steelworkers union, holding proxy powers to represent shareholders, will join the shareholders’ meeting and address Alcoa executives.

Platinum pension for execs but poverty pensions for workers? Unacceptable!

This morning we participated in an action today in solidarity with Unite The Union members who work for Irish Life, owned by Great West Life. Execs are meeting in downtown Toronto today and we are reminding them to end attack on workers’ pensions in Britain and Ireland.

After eight months of deadlock, #NAFTA negotiators are making progress on reaching a deal in principle.

However, Canadian negotiators must ensure that any new NAFTA agreement protects the Canadian economy from the destructive anti-trade practices of China. One need look no further than the Canadian steel industry to see why this is the case. Failing to do so risks jeopardizing the livelihoods of thousands of middle-class Canadians.

At our 2016 USW National Policy Conference, #USW members passed a resolution supporting the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and living up to #UNDRIP is fundamental to the commission’s vision of reconciliation.

NDP MP Romeo Saganash's Bill C-262 will provide a practical, rights-based path "which Canada must follow to ensure that reconciliation is far-reaching and uncovers and redresses the colonial legacy embedded in Canada’s legal, economic, political and other systems."

More on what this bill means for thousands of Steelworkers: usw.to/2m7 #USWWorks #canlab #cdnpoli

Last year, we asked Mark’s Work Warehouse, FGL Sports and Canadian Tire if factories in Bangladesh have been made safe, and if worker rights are respected. They didn’t respond. Not to any one of us.

This year, on the 5th anniversary of the Rana Plaza building collapse which killed 1,129 Bangladesh garment workers, we will again email their presidents and CEOs.

Our brother, Muhammad Umar, a Taxi Driver in Regina was violently attacked on April 13th. We believe that no worker should go to work to provide for their family only to pay with their health and safety or, tragically, their life.

We are inviting all taxi drivers and members of the public to a community forum on taxi worker safety:
Sunday, April 22, 2018, 4 p.m.
Turvey Center
100 Armour Rd., Highway 6 N., Regina.

There is also a fundraiser being put on by fellow Steelworkers to support Muhammad's family as he recovers. Those interested in contributing can contact the USW Regina office at 306-569-9663 or contribute via the GoFundMepage: gf.me/u/h4asb4
