Ravenswood, WV - A benefit concert and rally for United Steelworkers (USW) Local 5668 who work at Constellium Rolled Products Ravenswood, WV will be held September 8.
Seven Hundred members were forced to go on Strike on August 5 because of the company’s unwillingness to negotiate in good faith to reach an agreement on such issues as healthcare coverage, pension and wages. The local has filed an unfair labor practice with the National Labor Relation Board (NLRB.)
The Concert and Rally will kick off at 12:00 noon and there will be several local bands and noted speakers on hand to perform and speak throughout the day. The Concert and Rally will be held on the grounds of USW Local 5668 Union Hall.
In addition to the Concert and Rally we are doing a non-perishable food drive. All financial and food donations will go to the relief of the striking Union Members of, USW Local 5668. Your support is greatly appreciated; we thank you in advance for your show of support for the striking members and their families.
With your financial support, donations, help, and moral support, we can win this Unfair Labor Practice Strike. Together we shall let the Company know we are strong and we are determined to achieve a fair contract.
