Tell Calgon to Give Locked Out Steelworkers their Jobs Back
At midnight on February 29, Calgon Carbon, a Pittsburgh based corporation, locked out 60 members of USW local 5032 on Neville Island. The company is demanding that its unionized workforce submit to cuts in healthcare and in their pensions before they can return to their jobs.
Show your solidarity with the locked out Steelworkers by calling on Calgon to treat its workers fairly.
On Tuesday, April 15 call Calgon and tell management to end the lockout and bargain a fair contract with USW Local 5032.
Hello, my name is ________. I’m calling in support of the locked out members of USW local 5032 on Neville Island. We see Calgon’s attack on its employees as an attack on our community. The people who have made your company profitable deserve affordable healthcare and secure pensions. I’m asking that Calgon let the locked out Steelworkers return to their jobs and bargain a fair contract with the union.
