Attend a USW Ontario Election School
Posted 2018-Apr-13

Steelworkers helped build the NDP; now we want to keep it growing.  Together, we can elect a government that is on our side.


The USW District 6 is inviting our Local 1944 members in Ontario interested in getting more involved in politics, to apply for a week-long USW Election School.  The schools will take place from Wednesdays to Tuesdays, on the following dates:

  • May 9-15 (inclusive): Sudbury
  • May 23-29 (inclusive): Hamilton
  • May 23-29 (inclusive): London
  • May 30-June 5 (inclusive): Toronto

Students will be provided training on the following:

  • Provincial election issues
  • Skills and understanding of election campaigns
  • Confidence in having conversations about politics
  • Ways to engage USW members in politics

The week will also include volunteering actions with other Steelworkers in NDP campaigns.  Please read the official USW Ontario Election School document online for more information.

Applications will be accepted starting now and on a rolling basis until all spots are filled.  Apply now online to benefit from this intensive experience!

To learn how you can become involved in the election, read the "Guide to Steelworkers' Involvement in the Ontario 2018 Election".


In Solidarity,
