USW associate members are eligible for two types of benefits:
Opportunities for Activism:
Associate members can become active with their district and/or a local union in the city where they live. We actively encourage associate members to get in touch with steelworkers they know or with their central labor councils to find out how to get involved in fighting for worker friendly legislation and in helping get friends of labor elected to office.
