Local Election Nominations Open

Local 3657 elections will take place in April.  This message serves to notify members of Local 3657 about the nominations process for our Local Union.  Offices on the Local 3657 Executive Board, positions on the Grievance Committee, and District Stewards are up for election.

How To Nominate

In order to nominate someone, email Recording Secretary Lisa Nutter (lnutter@usw.org) and specify the member you are nominating as well as the office and/or position you are nominating him or her for.  You can also make a nomination from the floor or over the phone during this month’s membership meeting, which is scheduled for Thursday, March 22 at 12:30 PM (EST).  Nominations will not be accepted after this month’s Local Union meeting.

Members cannot accept nominations for more than one office on the Local 3657 Executive Board.  However, members can serve on the Executive Board and sit on the Grievance Committee and/or be a District steward (Grievance Committee members are not Local Union officers under the Local Union Elections Manual).  Members who work in the Districts and Washington, D.C., office shall only nominate and elect a steward for their respective District and office.  Please note that per the Local 3657 bylaws the meeting attendance rule shall not be enforced for this election.

Women of Steel Host Teach-In

Local 3657’s Women of Steel Committee in Pittsburgh held a teach-in on March 7 not only in honor of Women’s History month but also due to the many ongoing challenges women face in the workplace and in the union as well as the trials many of us will come to face with the new administration in Washington, D.C.

Union sisters spoke about issues such as workplace violence, immigration, and family and medical leave and noted that although they affect women at a higher rate than men, they must be viewed as worker and labor issues.

Participants filled the room, signifying a desire for more of these conversations, and we hope to keep this work and momentum going! Shout out to all of you sisters, and brothers, out there fighting the good fight.
