Join our guests online in an open discussion about engaging union members in voting and politics:

  • What is populism and how does it affect our union and union members?
  • The importance of union members engaging in the political process
  • Appealing to those who feel left behind by politics
  • Discussing the rise in right-wing populism and disillusion in the context of the history of unions and worker solidarity
  • Getting to a conversation with those who feel left behind by politics, politicians and governments

All Steelworkers are welcome.

Steelworkers are active in politics to have a positive impact on our workplaces, our communities and in our lives. During the pandemic we can’t gather in person, so let’s get together online.
