USW Local 310L Des Moines, IA

We represent the hard-working employees of the Bridgestone-Firestone Agricultural Tire Plant in Des Moines, IA.

This page contains lots of important information regarding unemployment. We have partnered with Iowa Works to bring as much information to affected members as possible.

Take Action

We are calling on everyone to take action on the union busting bill SSB3158 and contact your Iowa State SenatorThe bill requires a union to go to court if the public employer fails to upload an employee list to the labor board for recertification purposes or the unit will be decertified. This proposal penalizes public sector unions for failing to take an action which is not within their control.
