Hundreds of Steelworkers and retirees from USW Local 7367 and District 7 held a protest demonstration at the Federal Building in the Chicago Loop April 30th to demand that ArcelorMittal, the largest steel company in the world, "Use It or Sell It." ArcelorMittal is closing it's Hennepin, Illinois plant and destroying 300 good steelmaking jobs. The company is the largest employer in the area and the economic impact of the closing will be devastating to the entire community.
