History of the United Steelworkers of America (USWA) District 35

The United Steelworkers of America (USWA) District 35 covers the states of Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia. Headquarters are in Atlanta, Georgia. District 35 is administered through an International Executive Board including a district director, sub-district director, assistant director, international representative and staff representatives. Prior to the merger that created the AFL-CIO in 1955, District 35 existed as a Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) steelworker's region (USA-35). In 1972, District 50 of the United Mine Workers of America and District 35 formally aligned. USWA District 35 represents the interests of organized labor in the six state region through grievance and arbitration procedure, collective bargaining and political education. USWA District 35 merged with District 36 (Birmingham, Ala.) to form the new District 9, which was headquartered in Birmingham Ala. M.C. Weston served as director from 1965-1976.
