Leo W. Gerard served as the International President of our great union from 2001 to 2019, leading us through challenges and triumphs in Canada and the United States. As of July 15, 2019, Leo has retired, and International Vice President Tom Conway is now serving as the USW International President.

Carol Landry was the first-ever woman on the United Steelworkers International Executive Board, serving as the International Vice President at Large since 2008. Carol has been a champion for equity, human rights and creating space for new activists and leaders.

Let’s wish these two amazing Canadian leaders a happy retirement and thank them for their contributions!
