It is my pleasure to welcome you to the United Steelworkers union. You are now part of our International Union which represents 225,000 members in nearly every economic sector across Canada and is the largest private-sector union in North America, with 850,000 members in Canada, the United States and the Caribbean.
In Canada, the USW has three regional districts and a National Office headquartered in Toronto. You are a member of District 3 representing members in Western Canada and the Territories.
Our union is run by and for our members. You are immediately supported and represented by your local union. The elected officers and representatives in your local union, supported by USW staff, are committed to providing you with the information and support you need.
Please take a moment to fill out the form with your contact information and proceed with our virtual New Member Orientation. This virtual orientation is designed for you to learn more about the union and to receive essential information that you can use now and in the future.
Our union is only as strong as our members. I invite you to learn more and to get involved by taking advantage of the many opportunities that our union is proud to offer.
And, don’t forget to stay up-to-date by following the USW District 3 Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts. You can also receive important text message updates by texting D3 to 32323. Standard text and data rates may apply.
I look forward to meeting you at a union event in the near future.
