I am sending a reminder about this fabulous program to ensure that we receive as many applicants as possible. Steelworker Summer provides an opportunity for your children to take part in the important work and life of the United Steelworkers, and earn $600.00 a week in the process. The deadline for applications is May 19th, but students should apply as soon as possible. Below you will find more detail about the program:
Steelworker Summer is an educational and training placement in which participants develop skills useful for union growth by experiencing firsthand the kinds of struggles workers face while trying to win a voice at work and in the community. It is also designed to give participants an understanding and appreciation of the positive impact of unions on the lives of working women and men.
Steelworker Summer is a program for young adults who want firsthand experience working for social justice. Ideally, participants will remain active after Steelworker Summer by educating others about the value of the labour movement, possibly forming student/labour action coalitions, becoming union organizers, or contributing in some other way to the labour movement.
Placements are open to young adults who are children of Steelworker members whose locals pay into the Family Education Fund. The students must be 17-25 years of age and currently enrolled in an education program.
If you know of students who might be interested, please pass this letter along to them. The application can be accessed and downloaded at usw.ca/districts/6/resources/education. If there are any issues downloading the application, or you have questions about the application or program, please contact the District 6 Education Coordinator, Marlene Gow, at
(416) 544-5976 or mgow@usw.ca.

In Solidarity,
Marty Warren
District 6 Director
