On May 9, the Allegheny County Democratic Committee (ACDC) presented United Steelworker (USW) Steffi Domike the Catherine Baker Knoll Award at the Committee’s Jackson-Jefferson Dinner in Pittsburgh, PA. Domike, a technician in the Education and Membership Development department of the USW headquarters and a member of USW Local 3657, spends endless hours to assist workers in Pennsylvania.
The Catherine Baker Knoll Award is presented annually to women who display exceptional achievement and further the goals of the Allegheny County Democratic Committee.
“We are grateful for your multifaceted work in the arts, academia and advocacy,” said ACDC chair Nancy Patton Mills. “Our ongoing relationship with our brothers and sisters in labor is enhanced by your contributions.”
Since April 11th, workers at Rivers Casino have been standing strong, organizing, and demanding a fair process to form a union. Rivers Casino management has continued its intimidation campaign, flagrantly disrespecting the will of the Pittsburgh community. It’s time to show Rivers Casino we just won’t tolerate intimidation and harassment in this town!

Here is a picture of some of the purses which were so graciously donated to the WOS Local 3657 Purse Drive. As you can see the response was overwhelming.
Since there are an overabundance of purses and personal hygiene items we will be able to “spread the wealth” as they say to a number of different organizations. Paulette Battisti has made contact with a young woman from New York City, who works directly with the hurricane victims in several area shelters. The purses will be drop shipped to a central location and hopefully the WOS will be making a road trip to visit the facilities.
Also, purses are being sent out to (2) local women’s shelters and a facility called the Center For Hope, who will give the purses out to the women who are signed up for their food pantry.
