Union members should wake up and realize that their union leaders are more than happy to trade your money in exchange for a certain measure of power awarded by the Democratic party.
Unions with members involved in the Keystone Pipeline endorsed Joe Biden, throwing tens of thousands of union workers under the bus. So union members that followed their leaders in essence fired themselves.
The United Steelworkers union endorsed Joe Biden and now they find themselves begging Biden not to drop the tariff on steel implemented by President Trump that revitalized the steel industry in the United States.
If Biden follows through with lifting the tariff, plants that opened and reopened under Trump will close again benefitting countries other than ours.
Steel industry groups urge Biden to keep tariffs in place after EU truce
U.S. steel industry groups and the United Steelworkers union on Wednesday urged President Joe Biden to keep in place the steel tariffs imposed three years ago, saying that lifting them now would undermine the industry’s viability.
In a letter to Biden just days after his chief trade negotiator struck a temporary tariff truce with the European Union, the groups argued that the “Section 232” national security tariffs imposed by former president Donald Trump have been a success, leading to $15.7 billion in new capacity investments.
“Eliminating the steel tariffs now would undermine the viability of our industry,” wrote the heads of the American Iron and Steel Institute, the Steel Manufacturers Association, the United Steelworkers and other groups.
“Global steel overcapacity has only increased during the pandemic, and past economic crises have led to devastating import surges as other nations dumped their excess steel into the U.S. market.”
This is the same union that cast an image of the Biden/Harris logo on the Trump Tower. But if you are a steelworker, you and a couple hundred of thousands of your buddies will be on the unemployment line but at least you got what you paid for. And you even get to keep paying your dues to the union that got you sacked.
Just pray that when it is time to retire that you find out the union pension fund can’t keep its end of the bargain.
