United Steelworkers (USW) members, retirees, and their supporters will be converging at Local 6787’s union hall and the Duneland Falls Banquet Center at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 1, as part of a steel industry-wide day of action for fair contracts, the USW said today.

Local 6787 is located at 1100 Ind. 149.

“Labor agreements covering about 30,000 Steelworkers at ArcelorMittal and U.S. Steel facilities throughout the country are set to expire on Sept. 1, and negotiations for new contracts have been slowed by management’s demands for unfair and unnecessary concessions from employees at both companies,” the union said.

The USW represents 850,000 workers in North America employed in many industries, including metals, rubber, chemicals, paper, oil refining, and the service and public sectors.
