Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.
The United Steelworkers (USW) undertook a multistate bus tour last week, calling for robust infrastructure investment drawing on the goods and services USW members proudly provide. The tour is a part of the union’s “We Supply America” campaign, through which the USW is advocating for large-scale, long-term infrastructure investments that will create good union jobs and rebuild communities. USW members in six states held events along the tour route, while others across the United States joined with their employers to send letters to the Biden administration and elected officials, engaged in a postcard campaign that included delivering thousands of cards to Senate offices, and called their members of Congress.
