More than 2,200 members of the United Steelworkers from 12 sites around the country are standing up for good, family-sustaining jobs at Allegheny Technologies. Steelworkers at ATI are working to bargain a new labor agreement with the Pittsburgh-based company that would replace the contract that expired on June 30. Union workers are seeking a contract that would maintain secure, family sustaining jobs at ATI while management is demanding that workers submit to deep cuts that would jeopardize local jobs and undermine the next generation of workers.

Please support the Steelworkers at ATI by signing this petition:   Steelworkers Petition
