Local 712 Members
Show Solidarity


At rally supporting USWA Local 169
Pictured at the Nov. 20 rally are Rich Littleton, Pres. Bob Smith, Randy Justice, Dave Kunninger, Dave ‘Soupbean’ Pierce, Mike Collipe and Ron Jacobs.

Local 712 members at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio were locked out for nearly 50 days two and a half years ago, so when they heard that locked-out Steelworkers were having a rally in Mansfield, about 20 miles away, several decided to be there. 

USWA Local 169 members were locked out on Sept. 1 when their contract with Armco Steel expired. Now owned by AK Steel, the plant is being operated by scabs and salaried employees.
