Next Generation

Next Generation is a program to inspire and educate the young members of the United Steelworkers, North America’s largest industrial union that proudly represents 1.2 million current and retired workers. The Steelworkers of today work in industries like manufacturing, oil, paper, health care and pharmaceutical, education, public services, mining, forestry and so much more.

The USW has a proud history of standing up for workers and making our world a better place. The Next Generation program honors our past, protects our present and aims to make our union viable and relevant for the future by introducing our newest members to a lifetime of activism.

USW Local 310’s Next Gen committee would like to thank everyone who came together to make this year’s Solidarity for Soldiers drive a success.

Solidarity for Soldiers was established by USW Local 310L’s Next Generation Committee in 2015. It is our goal to bring together the labor community in Des Moines to help veterans who are homeless or at risk of being homeless. Each year, we organize a drive to support the Des Moines Homeless Veterans Stand Down.
