Brothers and Sisters,

Over the last 2+ years you have heard over and over “The members run this Union!”

What does that really mean?

We as Union members make the choices. Some guy sitting behind a desk in Chicago doesn’t tell us what we are doing, take our dues money, and not return our calls as has been in the past. We choose the direction we wish to take. This is what makes UE unique. We elect officers and stewards to be our advocates with our best interest in mind. We don’t pander or pad the wallets of special interest. Our members truly are our voice.

How can you be involved and help out?

The best way to get a real introduction is to become a Shop Steward. Stewards are needed in every yard. They are the advocates for all of us when there is a discrepancy, conflict, or negotiation.

If you wish to become a shop steward in your yard or would just like more information contact your area Chief Steward or use the CONTACT US tab on the main website.

Without members help and participation we are just your joe average union!

Thank You and be safe!

Ron Russell
