USW Social Media Comment Policy: Let's talk, respectfully

Let's talk, respectfully

Our union was founded in 1942 with a sacred principle that still guides us today: all are welcome. The more voices, the better! The more of us that stick together, the stronger we are. With that being said, we wanted to remind everyone of our official USW comment policy for our FacebookInstagram, Twitter and YouTube pages.

We encourage open discussion about issues important to our members, their families and all of the world’s working people. We respectfully ask everyone to honour the following guidelines when commenting. Comments that do not follow the guidelines will be removed. Repeated failure to follow the guidelines could result in followers being banned from our pages. We're all family - so even if we disagree - let's do it with love and open minds!
