The Good News

Director Honored by United Steel Workers
by Clay Flaherty, AmeriCorps VISTA

At last month’s Rural Action board retreat, board member Dave Simpson from the United Steel Workers (USW) Local 5-698 in Piketon, Ohio presented our executive director, Michelle Decker, with the commemorative backpack pictured above in honor of Rural Action’s outreach to labor.

We would like to thank USW and Dave Simpson for their recognition. We look forward to working with labor and unions in the future, especially with the possibility of a partnership through the Blue Green Alliance.
