Local 1537


Take Action

In April, we stood with President Trump when he called for an investigation to examine the importance of steel to our national security. We said then and believe now that it’s about time we have actions such as this from the White House to remind people that a strong steel industry, from the mines to the mills, is the backbone of our country, our infrastructure and our military.
