United Steelworkers District 9 Local 1013The seeds of this great union were planted in the late 1800s by our fathers and mothers, our grandparents, our great-grandparents and so on. They were seeds of commitment, solidarity, and a common interest to fight for better conditions for working men and women everywhere. Through wars and recessions, good times and bad times, we established our family roots: better wages, job security, reasonable hours, and safer working conditions. Thanks to the strength and activism of our members, our branches reached out to lead movements that stop child labor, provide aid to injured workers, fight for retirees, stand up for civil and human rights, and so much more. Today, we are a strong union, bold and proud. We continue to believe in better things, and together we are still standing up and fighting back for everyone.
