Happy Birthday, Steelworkers!
80 years ago today on May 22, 1942, with 700,000 members in Canada and the U.S., delegates voted to create the United Steelworkers.
A union founded on the principles of justice, solidarity and a common interest to organize and demand better conditions for workers – we are proud, every day, to see the same spirit and strength that created our great union still reflected in the actions of our members 80 years later.
Today, we are stronger and prouder than ever – and we have never been more committed to believing that together, we can fight to make life better for all.
To the Steelworkers who make our union strong – thank you. We are nothing without our members.
Here’s to the next 80 ✊
