Leadership. In our union, it’s so much more than a word. Leadership is about people: the men and women we’re honored to serve. And the women and men who’ve served with honor. Watch and share our tribute to Leo W. Gerard, Stan Johnson, Carol Landry and Jon Geenen as they retire and we welcome new leaders to continue our great legacy.

USW | A Woman of Steel Is...

Women of Steel is an activist-arm of the USW that evolved from the early women’s caucuses that demanded that women have their rightful place in our union. Originally, WOS was designed as a Leadership Course for union sisters to learn how the union works and is still offered in each district annually, but now, the USW Constitution requires that each local union with female members establish a Local Union Women’s Committee. All female members of the USW are considered Women of Steel regardless of their union-position or the industry or service they work in, some are activists, and some serve on their local’s Women’s Committee.
