Local Union News

Thank you to members, retirees and friends who joined us to celebrate our 60th year as a chartered Local Union. We hope you enjoy these photos from the event.  Here's to 60 more!

“When an incident like this unfortunately happens, everyone comes together. The miners support each other, the highly trained mine rescue teams come together and the whole community waits patiently praying for the safe return of every one of the 39 miners to surface,” said Nick Larochelle, USW Local 6500 President, representing 30 of the 39 miners. Union officials have been on-site all night at the mine and are working closely with Vale for the safe return of all miners.
The United Steelworkers union (USW) is deeply concerned for the 39 workers who have been temporarily trapped underground at Vale’s Totten Mine in Sudbury since early Sunday. Rescue efforts are underway and the union is cautiously optimistic all of the workers will be safely evacuated as soon as possible.
