Rapid Response Report

USW Local 3657

Rapid Response

Committee Report

Please sign any online petition or sign any letter that opposes current FAST TRACK legislation !!!

This legislation, FAST TRACK trade authority cuts out Congress from the negotiating process, limiting its ability to influence decisions that will have real and significant impacts throughout our state and nation. It will send more of our jobs overseas.

It is time for a new approach to trade where we all can benefit.  Unfortunately the current FAST TRACK proposal does not achieve that goal.  We strongly urge our members to oppose FAST TRACK !

3657 Attends Rapid Response Conference in DC

Rapid Ressponse_2014_1Members from local 3657 joined more than 600 other Steelworkers from the United States and Canada for the Rapid Response and Legislative Conference last week in Washington DC. The conference started with a day of plenaries and workshops from the Good Jobs Green Conference, the BlueGreen Alliance’s annual legislative conference.  The rest of the week was Steelworker-focused with guest speakers, panel discussions and workshops all centered around union activism and the theme of the conference — Investing in America’s Infrastructure. Check out the slide show of photos from the conference by clicking here for day one and here for day two!
