Washington, D.C. — United Steelworkers (USW) International President Tom Conway passed away Monday. Conway was a founding director of the Alliance for American Manufacturing, and his leadership, advocacy and foresight will be sorely missed. Our deepest sympathies go to his family and to his colleagues at USW.
Alliance for American Manufacturing President Scott Paul said:
“Tom was an extraordinary leader, possessing the ideal combination of vision, commonsense, good nature, and resolve. He always had the backs of his brothers and sisters at the USW and understood firsthand the struggles of America’s working people.
“His values and ideas — putting workers first, scrapping flawed free trade deals, boosting manufacturing, investing in our nation — are now front and center in American politics. And it isn’t an accident.
“His hard work leaves a durable legacy and a foundation upon which we must all build.”
