Workers Show Support for Stimulus Package
Workers to Deliver Message to Nashville and Davidson County
Event to Demonstrate Broad Support for a “Buy American” Resolution
(Nashville, TN) — Members of the United Steelworkers from across Middle Tennessee will gather at the offices of the United Steelworkers International Union to kick off their “Make our Future Work” program. Members of the union will deliver a Resolution regarding the spending of Federal Economic Renewal Grants which was part of the economic stimulus bill recently passed in Washington, D.C. The event urging Metro Davidson Council to pass the Resolution is part of similar efforts across the area, including Rutherford County and its municipalities. Workers will tell their personal stories about what “Buy American” means to them, and why it is important for local governments receiving federal stimulus dollars to spend that money to create and maintain jobs in the United States.
