LOCAL 1010
Women of steel is an activist-arm of the USW that evolved from the early women’s caucuses that demanded that women have their rightful place in our union. 

Originally, WOS was designed as a Leadership Course for union sisters to learn how the union works and is still offered in each district annually, but now, the USW Constitution requires that each local union with female members establish a Local Union Women’s Committee. 

All female members of the USW are considered Women of Steel regardless of their union-position or the industry or service they work in, some are activists, and some serve on their local’s Women’s Committee.
