Lifelong Learning for USW Members

“Experience has shown that worker growth and development are stunted when programs are mandated from above, but flourish in an atmosphere of voluntary participation in self-designed and self-directed training and education.” USW/Company Contract Language

National Scope

Institute for Career Development is a national joint labor-management eduation program of the United Steelworkers and participating companies where USW members work.

Local Focus

Each Career Development program is locally governed by a committee composed of members of the Local Union and representatives of the participating company.

Individualized Learning

Participants design and develop their own training and education plan according to their personal goals, choosing courses and programs to meet their individual learning objectives.

A ‘cut’ above the rest

Michael Pugh doesn’t work 365 days a year. It just seems like it.

Pugh, 33, works on the cast house floor in iron producing at USW/ArcelorMittal in Cleveland. He’s also a carpenter, handy man, and operates his own chainsaw business.

He credits a lot of his knowledge to the Institute for Career Development.

Learning's his benefit for life

Matt McIntyre is a go-getter. That’s simply the only way to put it.

A true example of using the ICD program to its full potential, McIntyre hasn’t stopped hitting the knowledge button.
