Next Generation

Next Generation is a program to inspire and educate the young members of the United Steelworkers, North America’s largest industrial union that proudly represents 1.2 million current and retired workers. The Steelworkers of today work in industries like manufacturing, oil, paper, health care and pharmaceutical, education, public services, mining, forestry and so much more.

The USW has a proud history of standing up for workers and making our world a better place. The Next Generation program honors our past, protects our present and aims to make our union viable and relevant for the future by introducing our newest members to a lifetime of activism.

Solidarity for Soldiers is a USW NextGen initiative. It is our goal to help local veterans who are homeless or at risk of being homeless.

We are proud to announce that the Next Generation Committee is making a return for 2019. Next Generation is about education, activism, and mobilizing the next generation of union members.
