Free College Benefit

Brothers and sisters,

One item we wanted to bring to everyone's attention is a free college plan through the United Steelworkers. It is called the Free College Benefit and it applies to all USW members and their immediate families. The 2 year associate's degree is provided online through Eastern Gateway Community College here in Ohio. Everyone who applies is accepted. The courses are set up to have scheduling flexibility for people who work full time jobs. All you have to do is fill out the financial assistance application online and you're in, regardless of whether or not you qualify for the financing. The Steelworkers will pay for any outstanding amount. Visit for more information.
