|You Did Great Work, Steelworkers!Last week, after months of preparation, around 700 USW members traveled to our nation’s capital in Washington, D.C. to attend the 2023 Rapid Response, Legislative, and Policy Conference. Members heard from a variety of speakers and Steelworker activists from across the country on issues about trade, retirement security and pro-labor legislation. They attended workshops and participated in almost 200 lobby meetings with their legislators and staff.During the conference activists had the opportunity to participate in a labor history bus tour and a community service project. The bus tour stopped at several monuments of great importance to the labor movement. The highlight of the tour was our stop at the AFL-CIO headquarters, also fondly known as the House of Labor. Here we learned about the significance and meaning behind the mosaic that adorns the ground floor walls. The community service project received massive support from our Districts and attendees. The Center for Creative Non-Violence, formerly the Federal City Shelter, was overwhelmed by your steelworker generosity. The donations collected will go a long way toward supplying the 1350-bed facility for months to come.Thank you, Steelworkers! #USWCares
