Jan 7: Fight Back Pittsburgh! inaugural meeting

Inaugural Meeting of Fight Back PittsburghFight Back Pittsburgh! is the Associate Member program of United Steelworkers Local 3657.
Working class people in Pittsburgh are under attack! We’re facing high unemployment, low wages and poor working conditions, and cuts to essential public services like transit and education. Meanwhile a handful of big companies are getting rich by driving down wages for workers and not paying their fair share of taxes.

Decades ago the Steelworkers fought to win good, family sustaining jobs in Pittsburgh and to create social services to give us all a fair shot at success. We created a decent standard of living for working class people in Pittsburgh once, and together we can do it again.

Fight Back Pittsburgh! is the community union of United Steelworkers Local 3657. We’re not just fighting for good jobs for Steelworkers; we’re fighting for a better community for all of us. But we need you to join us.

You don’t have to work in a steel mill to join Fight Back Pittsburgh. You just need to believe that we need an economy that works for all of us and that together we can stand up and fight back to win a fair deal for working people in our community.

Fight Back Pittsburgh is part of the United Steelworkers Associate Member Program and we work a lot like a local union. We’re a grassroots, democratic organization that works together to fight in our neighborhoods, in our local government, and in our workplaces for change and to improve our lives. We meet monthly, we’re funded by small dues contributions paid by our members, and we take action based on the ideas and proposals of rank-and-file members like you.

6:30 at United Steelworkers Headquarters, 5 Gateway Center, 15222 (downtown).  You can see the agenda and RSVP via Facebook, If you can't make it in person, the meeting will be live-streamed online here.
