Local Union 1899 Granite City, IL


We are dedicated to informing our members and building solidarity. It is our pleasure to welcome you on behalf of the membership of United Steelworkers Local 1899. Our local is proud to represent over 100 years of unbroken unionism at Granite City Steel.

Local 1899 was established in May of 2003 when the three major local unions at Granite City Works and the locals representing the Guard and Office & Technical units, along with the represented employees of GCS Credit Union and Stein Steel Services amalgamated.

“1899” was chosen as our new local number as it was the first year that reference to a Union at Granite City Steel was recorded. Our membership in the main plant numbers approximately 1400 and includes production, maintenance, and office and technical workers, as well as fire and security members.

The United Steelworkers have a proud heritage at Granite City Works, and Local 1899 is known as a leader and activist Union in District 7 and throughout the International Union

It is the goal of this local to represent every member to its fullest; to protect your rights and insure your safety on the job, and to further the principals of the United Steelworkers that all members be treated fairly, paid justly for their work and afforded the respect and dignity they deserve. To that end, we are here to serve you.
