#SOSJobs: Join us in Granite City, Illinois next week

Posted by TGarland on 05/07/2014

On Monday, the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) joined citizens, workers, and state and federal legislators from Ohio to rally in support of steel jobs at the U.S. Steel’s Lorain Tubular Operations facility.

Next Friday, AAM will continue to rally support for steel jobs. Join us in Granite City, Illinois:

Why? What’s the problem?

The steel products produced in Granite City – called oil country tubular goods (OCTG) – are used for energy exploration. OCTG provides the infrastructure for America’s boom in oil and natural gas production. You could even say it’s underpinning America’s emerging energy independence.

But domestic producers of OCTG are in danger of being swamped by illegal competition. By dumping their OCTG products in the U.S. market at prices far below fair value, companies based overseas are putting American jobs at risk.

These jobs are worth fighting for. That’s why Illinois Governor Pat Quinn and U.S. representatives William Enyart and Rodney Davis are joining us next Friday, May 16 at 3 pm.

So save the date. And in the meantime: Learn more about the threat facing steelworkers in Illinois and across the country. And then take action to help.
