Our union successfully lobbied against the imposition of tariffs on our steel and aluminum exports to date. We led the labour movement in taking the message to the White House that Canada is not the problem. But the exemption is temporary. Now we must fight to make the exemption permanent and also to force the Canadian government to take immediate action to prevent a surge of offshore steel and aluminum imports into Canada as a result of U.S. tariffs imposed on other countries.

Through the #Section232 investigation, the U.S. administration received ample and clear evidence that Canada is NOT the problem. Canada doesn't engage in illegal dumping and unfair trade; Canadian producers represent a stable, secure and environmentally favourable source of steel and aluminum that benefits American industry and consumers. Canada should be excluded from tariffs. On our side of the border, the Liberal federal government has a responsibility to defend Canadian industries and jobs, as U.S. tariffs will threaten to increase the dumping of cheap foreign steel into Canada.

Gender-based violence primarily affects women, and it seriously impacts women workers’ lives around the globe. Violence against women is a violation of women’s human rights, an obstacle to gender equality, and violence against women at work is a core trade union issue affecting workers’ rights, safety, health and dignity.

Join your locals, our union and our international comrades to take a pledge to say no to violence against women. Add your name at: #canlab #1u

Locked-out Steelworkers pay Alcoa CEO a visit at a BMO metals and mining conference.

"The best message that Alcoa's CEO could deliver to investors is that his company will resume negotiations to resolve the dispute in Bécancour. Since locking out its employees on January 11 – rather than negotiating a new collective agreement – Alcoa's balance sheet has taken a hit with each passing day," said Clément Masse, USW Local 9700 President.
