United Steelworkers (USW) International President David McCall issued the following statement today after being sworn in as a member of the AFL-CIO Executive Council:

“The labor movement was founded on the basic principle that all workers deserve fair compensation, safe working conditions and a dignified retirement – and that the best, most reliable way to achieve these goals is through unity and solidarity.

“I’m deeply honored to have this opportunity to represent the USW on the AFL-CIO Executive Council alongside USW International Vice President Roxanne Brown, and I look forward to working with President Liz Shuler, Secretary-Treasurer Fred Redmond and all the other council members as together we continue the fight for good jobs, healthy communities and fair treatment for all working people.”

The USW represents 850,000 workers employed in metals, mining, pulp and paper, rubber, chemicals, glass, auto supply and the energy-producing industries, along with a growing number of workers in health care, public sector, higher education, tech and service occupations.
