USW Local 310L Des Moines, IA

We represent the hard-working employees of the Bridgestone-Firestone Agricultural Tire Plant in Des Moines, IA.

Education is one of the cornerstones of the United Steelworkers. An educated membership is a strong membership. USW does a great job putting together conferences and other trainings to educate our members. With the craziness that is 2020, unfortunately many scheduled events were canceled this year. In the absence of in-person events this year, USW has put together a Virtual Education Conference.

On May 13, 2020, the USW announced its endorsement of Joe Biden for President. You can follow the link to watch a video from International President Tom Conway, explaining the process for this endorsement. You can also see the answers that Biden gave to USW's Candidate Questionairre. Donald Trump was offered the opportunity to provide answers as well, and did not return the questionairre.
