Steelworker for the Future Program
ArcelorMittal and the United Steelworkers (USW) have partnered with West Virginia Northern Community College and Eastern Gateway Community College to start a program aimed at boosting "the available workforce of qualified and trained workers with a background in mechanical and electrical skills." Their Steelworker for the Future program seeks to provide replacements for the anticipated numbers of retirements coming during the next several years at ArcelorMittal Weirton and other manufacturing plants locally and across the nation.
Last October, the Alliance for American Manufaturing (AAM) held a town hall in Indiana aimed at addressing the shortage of qualified workers in key areas of the nation's industrial base. White House Counselor on Manufacturing Policy Ron Bloom was among the key participants in the conference.
