Local 8782 was first chartered in 1978. We negotiate collective agreements for our members at U.S. Steel (former Stelco) Lake Erie Works, Pickling Division, Harsco Services, and ESM. Since our members are directly employed in the Steel Industry, it is our responsibility to be involved in the fight to save the steel industry in Canada. For this reason we are launching this web site to communicate the latest developments that affect you.
We hope to use this site as another avenue to communicate to our membership on past, present and future initiatives. If you have any suggestions of what you would like to see, please use our feedback page and we will review all suggestions.
