Stand up for Steel

The United Steelworkers union is calling on the federal government to take action now to ensure the long-term health of the steel sector and the good, community-supporting jobs it provides.

The Canadian steel industry employs 23,000 people directly and another 100,000 indirectly, including approximately 11,600 USW members. In 2019 alone, the steel industry contributed $4.2 billion to Canada’s GDP.The steel industry is not only essential to the Canadian economy, but it provides community-sustaining jobs across the country.
