Fighting back makes a difference! 

Since 1945, the men and women of our union have struggled through good times and bad.  Our struggles have changed the landscape of our communities and the industry, enriching them as we work for economic and social justice.  Our victories have been many and we take strength from them.  Those victories have come from our members working together in solidarity and diversity.  We take pride in

our diversity - of people and ideas.  We know that solidarity makes us stronger and that fighting back makes a difference.
