Workers Uniting For A Better World

Today, the fight begins for a more prosperous, fairer economy for everyone.

Workers Uniting, the global union formed by the United Steelworkers and the United Kingdom and Ireland’s Unite the Union, is hosting its first-ever economic policy conference, Building a Global Agenda for Shared Prosperity.

The conference in Toronto brings together labors and political leaders, economists, think tanks, workers, students and others to work on real solutions to the world’s economic woes. At the end of the meeting, a plan will be put forth offering concrete ideas for getting people back to work and for ending the painful austerity agenda that has been hurting ordinary people around the globe for far too long.

“What makes this gathering truly different is not just the exchange of ideas. What makes it groundbreaking is the idea that today is just the beginning of our fight. That we are not going to be content with just talking about a better way – we are leaving here with a solid plan and we will not stop until it is made reality,” USW International President Leo W. Gerard said in remarks opening the conference.
