President's Messages

"As events unfold, it will be my pleasure to provide each of you with more detailed communications about what we are doing for you. This Local is yours; I work for you, as all Officers do, and I strongly believe you should know what we do in our efforts to represent your best interests.

I encourage you to follow us on Facebook and Twitter @usw1944, and to visit our web site as often as possible, so that you may know what we do when we work for you. Please encourage fellow members to do the same. Thank you!"

 Isabelle Miller, National President of USW Local 1944

May 9, 2019 - Our Local Union is undergoing progressive changes aimed at reinvigorating, prioritizing, and engaging our membership. For quite some time, many of you have been asking for more opportunities to be mentored or further develop your skills as activists. Ensuring our future leaders receive the education they need is a top priority for our Local’s Officers.
March 27, 2019 - I’m very pleased to announce a change to the Local’s process of scheduling Unit Meetings, and to the content of those meetings. As previously announced in my President’s Message from February 14, 2019, many of you have expressed a desire to have less structured meetings, meetings that are much more about discussion, learning and plan making rather than moving through the regular order of business, minutes, reports, etc.
March 1, 2019 - This week, USW Local 1944 Table Officers and Local Union Representatives were invited to participate in a specialized training at the United Steelworkers Canadian National Office (USW CNO).
February 14, 2019 - Several of you have shared your displeasure regarding the format of your regular unit meetings. Some points raised were with respect to the structure of the meetings themselves, the frequency or lack thereof, the desire to be able to participate by other means if you’re not physically able to attend, and so on.
