USW International President Leo Gerard's pens letter to Los Mineros President Napoleón Gómez Urrutia as he returns to Mexico to become a Senator.

With Napoleón's swearing-in to the Senate, a new world of possibilities begins for Los Mineros and the working class of Mexico. For the first time in decades, there is a real opportunity to transform the structures of worker representation, industrial justice and economic decisión-making to make democratic representation, real collective bargaining, decent wages and pro-worker policies available to Mexican workers.

“We’re not the issue. These countries that have caused the issue are going to be looking for somewhere else to dump, and we’ve got to be able to stop that.” More: usw.to/2or #canlab #cdnpoli

It is abundantly clear that Canadian uranium exports do not present a national security threat to the U.S. There's no evidence to include Canada in the Section 232 investigation.

Targeting Canada’s uranium industry would be absurd and would suggest a deliberate escalation by the Trump administration – for its own political purposes – of a trade war with America’s closest ally.

Since the January 11th lockout of USW/Syndicat des Métallos Local 9700 members by ABI, they have lost $468 million CAD in revenues.

“Alcoa and Rio Tinto are losing, the Quebec government and all Quebecers are losing, workers and their families are deprived of their livelihood and the entire community is affected. Everyone loses, so why let this continue? It is high time to abandon this approach and to get back to producing high-quality aluminum at an efficient and productive smelter that operates with green electricity," said local president Clément Masse. #syndqc #1u
