Launch of District 3 NextGen Network

We are excited to announce the launch of our second network, the District 3 NextGen Network. 

The USW District 3 NextGen Network was created to inspire and connect all of our young members (35 and under) from across Western Canada. 

The Network will connect members to share stories and ideas, build an understanding of their important role in the labour movement, and to help grow our union. The Network will also provide opportunities for mentoring and leadership development, along with union and community activism. 

The issues and topics discussed within the Network will not always be union-related, and people can contribute whether it is work-related, political, informative, or creative. It is about bringing members together to have open discussions and conversations.

The Network will use a private Slack channel, and only members can see who is in the channel and what is posted. Slack is easy to join and offers both web and app-based access so you can stay connected wherever you are. Members can participate from the comfort of their own home or on breaks at work.  

Members must register to join the Network at

The Network is being coordinated by Deepak Kullar. If you have any questions about the Network, please reach out to Deepak at

Stay tuned for more networks to be launched in the weeks ahead, including networks for Veterans of Steel, Political Action, and Steel Pride. 

Join the NextGen Network today!

In solidarity,


Stephen Hunt
Director for District 3
