Iron, steel and non-ferrous metals
Workers in the world's iron and steel industry are severely affected by the cyclical nature of this sector. Through trade union strength at national and international levels this department advances workers’ rights. In order to do this we facilitate meetings, undertake research and challenge companies who fail to recognise that trade unions often hold the solution to workplace problems.
Rob Johnston, email@example.com, is director for this sector.
