USW Honors Japanese Nuclear Workers at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant

United Steelworkers International President Leo W. Gerard issued the following statement concerning the workers at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility in Japan:

The USW honors the brave Japanese men and women who are toiling day and night to cool down the reactors and spent nuclear fuel rods at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. They are risking their lives to prevent the meltdown of the reactors and fuel rods so millions of people do not die from the effects of radiation exposure.

We know the dangers these workers are facing because the USW represents several thousand workers in the Department of Energy complex.

We are concerned about the safety of these workers and know they are heroically putting themselves at risk. The workers' selfless devotion to their country and the safety of millions of their countrymen is to be admired, respected and honored.

These Fukushima Daiichi nuclear workers are heroes.
