USW Local 1005 and its 900 members and 9000 pensioners are waging a battle on behalf of ALL of us. Foreign-owned companies think we’re just body parts to be thrown away at the end of our work lives. U.S. Steel locked out it workers Nov. 7. It is trying to drive pensioners into the dirt by deindexing their pensions! AND they want defined benefit plans closed to new hires and replaced with defined contribution plans that are nothing more than glorified savings accounts. The OFL, CLC, USW Local 1005 and Hamilton and District Labour Council are calling for a massive province-wide mobilization to stop U.S. Steel and other foreign-owned companies from wrecking our communities and stealing our futures. Let’s get going!

Did you hear about the advances China has made in producing a substitute for steel?

Yes I did hear about that. But there is no reason why we can't produce it too.

Maybe China can make a substitute planet before we consume this one to death.
