Steelworkers In Canada Fight Attacks On Union
The Militant, 20 January 1997. Seventy-six members of Local 6917 of the United Steelworkers of America (USWA) have been on strike against S.A. Armstrong here for eight months.

By Lawrence McBrearty, National Director USWA, February 2003. Canada should remain committed to a UN-based process in dealing with the current regime in Iraq. The consequences of the United States, or any other nation, taking military action independent of the United Nations could be catastrophic.
