Wotherspoon welcomes unanimous endorsement of Saskatchewan’s United Steelworker locals

October 26, 2017

Today, NDP leadership candidate Trent Wotherspoon received the unanimous support of the 16 local unions and two retiree chapters of the United Steelworkers in Saskatchewan.

“It’s a tremendous honour to earn the support of the United Steelworkers, workers who build our economy and build communities all across Saskatchewan,” said Wotherspoon. “Together, we are committed to defeating the Sask. Party and building a province that works for everyone.”

"Our members work hard and contribute to their communities and province and we see in Trent a leader that understands and embodies that hard work," said Stephen Hunt, USW Western Canadian director. "Our union and our locals are fully behind Trent and the Saskatchewan NDP. The people of Saskatchewan need a Premier and government that puts working families first and governs for everyone, not just the privileged few."

USW represents over 6,000 active members working in the private sector in the province. USW members work as uranium and potash miners, making steel and pipe, in sawmills and forestry operations, as taxi drivers, in offices and in a range of other manufacturing and service industries.
