Dear Valued Member of the United Steelworkers Local 8599 Family,

I would like to address a mailer that you may have received from a political organization, the Freedom Foundation, under a threatening title “Legal Notice.” The Freedom Foundation is a crooked company funded by big businesses that wants you to stop supporting the USW in order to further their own political goals. This is a direct attack on all of us. You are your Union, and your Union needs your support!
