LOCAL UNION MERGER RATIFIED
Date July 05, 2017
Effective June 23, 2017 Local 1-
The membership has made a strong statement that they see the value in a large, strong, and effective United Steelworkers Local 1-
As noted in the merger information mailed to all members, this merger will improve our Local Unions effectiveness in Bargaining, Communication, Education, and other key areas, as well as realizing numerous cost savings.
While some members changed their Locals number as part of this merger we need to keep in mind that we have always been a part of the same organization, except now we will work harder together with the benefit of our combined experience and collective strength in numbers.
