    Sam Rodgers created SOAR

    Our union is stronger when Steelworker retirees are involved as activists, advocates and volunteers, which is why we established the Steelworkers Organization of Active Retirees (SOAR) in 1985.  With the establishment of SOAR, our union solidified its focus on the unique issues impacting USW retirees and their spouses.  Further, SOAR has been engaged in countless efforts to assure security for current and future generations of retirees regardless of whether they belong to a union or not.

    Meeting: 2nd Friday of the Month @ 1:00pm

    District 11 Green River Town Hall: Your Union. Your Voice.

    MARCH 19, 2020 - MARCH 19, 2020

    The most important work we do as a union involves bargaining and enforcing good contracts to secure fair wages, dependable benefits, and safe working conditions. However, whether we like it or not, workplace health and safety, wage and overtime regulations, retirement security, even our right to organize and bargain collectively, are all tied to local, state, and federal laws and the people making them. 

    As we move into 2020, we want to hear about the issues that matter most to you. That’s why we’re holding a series of town hall meetings across the country. We’ll have a conversation about your priorities and share some of our union’s work to impact government decisions. 

    Join United Steelworkers leaders, members, retirees and families for a Your Union. Your Voice town hall:
