    Steelworkers installation of officers celebrates unprecedented growth and member diversity - USWA, CNW newswire
    "This is not your grandfather's Steelworkers," said Gerard, a Sudbury native.
    ===============
    The union's membership density in Canada, which he said already makes the Steelworkers the most powerful union there, proved instrumental in a decade-long campaign to win the Westray Bill. That legislation amends the Criminal Code of Canada, making corporations, their directors and executives criminally accountable for knowingly failing to correct health safety hazards that result in the death or serious injury of a worker. It is the only such legislation in North America.
