Rapid Response is a network set up by the United Steelworkers in response to the attacks by the right wing in Congress. Rapid Response is a network that recruits at least 4% of the membership of a local union to be Team members and then trains them on how to educate their co-workers. It then allows our members to make their voice heard through various avenues including a toll free phone number or a personal letter to a legislator.
The communication with local unions and retirees is handled by faxes to a local coordinator who then disperses copies to the Team members. Since Rapid Response is an educational tool, not all communications ask for a response. Some communications designated as InfoFaxes simply share some key information with our members. If an action is being undertaken, the communication will be entitled an Action Call.
