Steelworkers Congratulate Mulcair on NDP Leadership Win
TORONTO 24 March, 2012 – "Thomas Mulcair has the guts, the charisma, the policies and the support of New Democrats and Steelworkers as new leader of our great party," said Ken Neumann, National Director of the United Steelworkers (USW). "Steelworkers and New Democrats are united behind Thomas Mulcair as our new leader."
The Steelworkers' NDP Membership Drive
Well before the federal election, Jack Layton asked the Steelworkers to engage in an NDP membership drive.
Jack reminded us that because of Stephen Harper's proposed changes to the election expenses laws and the NDP's one-member-one-vote rules, it is essential for union members as individuals to become NDP members.
Individual membership in the NDP is our link between labour and politics.
Our goal is to double our union's NDP members and make Steelworkers the largest union within the NDP.
If you are not already an NDP member, here are a number of easy ways you can join the NDP.
