#USWMade: Flipping for Fiestaware

Flippers. That’s what you call people who religiously turn over plates and other ware to look for a stamp from Homer Laughlin, founded in 1871. The logo represents over 100 years of craftsmanship, artistry and pride. From fine china to colorful Fiestaware, this ware is proudly made by the 600 members of USW Local 419M in Newell, W. Va. So the next time you’re having a meal, flip to see if it’s #USWMade! #PlateFlippers

Goodyear: #USWMade NASCAR Tires

Inside every Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series tire is a name — the name of a Steelworker from Local Union 2L in Akron, Ohio. For 69 years, 255 of our brothers and sisters have made these Goodyear tires by hand, ensuring every tire shipped out of the plant is not just a quality product, but one that will keep NASCAR drivers safe during races as they hit speeds exceeding 200 miles per hour. Click here to read more about the hands-on craftsmanship and why “quality and safety over quantity” is so important. #USWMade

The Power of Unity

This week we're celebrating our union's story of coming together, working together, fighting together for what we all want -- a better life for all. It hasn't always been easy, but our unity kept us together. We learned to stick it out when times got tough, to pull together when too many would like to see us fall apart. Watch and share the 2017 convention keynote video to see how the power of unity helped us build a great union and great nations.

United Steelworkers: For a Better Life

Steelworkers turn up the heat on big steel

Thousands of USW members and supporters took to the streets of Pittsburgh, Chicago and Burns Harbor, Ind., on Sept. 1 to demand fair contract settlements with U.S. Steel, ArcelorMittal and Allegheny Technologies Inc. (ATI).

We're all in this together

When Allegheny Technologies Inc. unfairly locked their workers from their jobs, Maddio's Pizza & Subs owner, Matt Struhar, took a stand for his friends, family and the community.

ATI, it's time to listen up!

On July 30, 2015, a group of over 700 workers, activists and community members marched on Allegheny Technologies Incorporated. The message to ATI was clear: we want a fair contract and we want it now!

Every kid deserves a bike Next Generation is a program to inspire and educate the young members of the United Steelworkers, North America’s largest industrial union that proudly represents 1.2 million current and retired workers. The Steelworkers of today work in industries like manufacturing, oil, paper, health care and pharmaceutical, education, public services, mining, forestry and so much more.

It's all about safety

USW oil workers have been forced into an unfair labor practice strike. The workers are fighting to secure fair contracts that will protect the health and safety of workers and communities. The oil industry is the richest in the world, but their greed and their bad faith bargaining has stalled efforts to improve conditions in their workplaces. The industry has refused to address serious health and safety issues.

One Day Longer. One Day Stronger.

February 6, 2015. United Steelworkers rally in downtown Houston after rejecting a contract offer. The companies' bad faith bargaining, including refusal to bargain over mandatory subjects and undue delays in providing information, impeded bargaining and led to the strike

USW The Fighting Spirit

In August 2011 United Steelworkers came together to stand up and fight back for workers around the world.
