AFL - CIO - CLC
Women of steel is an activist-arm of the USW that evolved from the early women’s
caucuses that demanded that women have their rightful place in our union. Originally,
WOS was designed as a Leadership Course for union sisters to learn how the union
works and is still offered in each district annually, but now, the USW Constitution
requires that each local union with female members establish a Local Union Women’s
Committee. All female members of the USW are considered Women of Steel regardless
of their union-position or the industry or service they work in, some are activists, and
some serve on their local’s Women’s Committee.
Local 1999 Women of Steel Committee meets
every third Sunday @ 9:30am prior to the
monthly Local Union Meeting. Everyone is
welcome to attend.
