If the pandemic has proven one thing, it’s that workers need to look out for themselves.

Tens of thousands of workers, including many of our own union siblings, used their collective voices to negotiate good contracts, raise wages, and secure benefits in 2021 during the Strike-tober and NO-vember movements.

But not everyone has a union contract and negotiated protections to keep them safe on the job—and that’s something you can help us change.

Our strength has always come from our numbers and our willingness to stand together across age, race, geographic region and industry. As more workers join our movement and our union, we increase power at our bargaining tables and strengthen our communities by having more workers with the protections a union contract can bring.

That’s why our union will be putting extra emphasis on organizing moving forward, including bringing on a number of rank-and-file USW members to serve as full time organizers.

This work will not be easy. But it is vital to protecting both union and non-union workers from employers who will never stop trying to pit us against each other to increase their own profits.

If you’re interested in joining this effort, please fill out this organizer application. We’re looking for serious, dedicated activists, and intensive training and travel will be required. If you have questions, please call 877-511-8792.
