Topic: Volunteering in your local labor union

Guest: Derick Gee, USWA Local 1219, Braddock, Pa.

How Topic Discussed: Derick Gee grew up a few blocks from U.S. Steel's Edgar Thomson Plant, but he never expected to work there after graduating from high school and moving away from the Pittsburgh area. What has working in a steel mill taught him about the value of manufacturing? How has being in a labor union helped and protected his career? Why did he get involved with his local union? What advice would he give to younger people, friends or neighbors who are considering a job at a company with a labor union?
