The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has plunged our world into crisis. Our USW members on an unfair labor practice strike at Asarco have been living with crisis for months and need our continued support and solidarity.
Since last October, more than 1,700 Steelworkers have been out on an unfair labor practice strike against ASARCO. The company’s proposals included no wage increases for a majority of the workers, doubling the out-of-pocket health care costs, freezing the existing pension plan and more. This is insulting after our brothers and sisters sacrificed to sustain the company during past downturns.
These workers earned and deserve a fair contract with better and more secure earnings, benefits and pensions.
If you agree, show them you’re with them by signing our solidarity pledge at: usw.to/UnityinCopperPledge.
Thanks for your time.
USW International President
