Marty Warren Statement for Black History Month

USW District 6 is pleased to continue its annual tradition of celebrating Black History month this February, virtually.

During the month of February, District 6 will acknowledge and recognize the vast contributions and sacrifices that Black workers have made toward shaping our union as well as our communities over the years. During the pandemic, District 6 continues its support for frontline health-care workers and essential workers, who continue to work each day to keep us all safe and to ensure our families have access to essential goods and services.

We recognize that there are a significant number of these important workers who are from the Black community. Their contributions during this unprecedented time are greatly appreciated.

The United Steelworkers union believes in diversity and equality and will work earnestly to eradicate all forms of discrimination within our workplaces and communities. We will continue to work with our political leaders to ensure meaningful progress is made to achieve this goal.

Please join our District 6 Human Rights and Women of Steel Committees on February 25 to celebrate this important month, virtually. We will also celebrate the election of Kamala Harris in the U.S. – the first American female Vice President of Black and Asian descent!
