Join the NDP. Be part of changing Canadian Politics
The Steelworkers’ NDP Membership Drive
Well before the federal election, Jack Layton asked the Steelworkers to engage in an NDP membership drive.
Jack reminded us that because of Stephen Harper’s proposed changes to the election expenses laws and the NDP’s one-member-one-vote rules, it is essential for union members as individuals to become NDP members.
Now with a federal NDP leadership race underway, it is time to honour Jack’s request.
Individual membership in the NDP is our link between labour and politics.
Our goal is to double our union’s NDP members and make Steelworkers the largest union within the NDP.
If you are not already an NDP member, here are a number of easy ways you can join the NDP.
- Join now online at www.ndp.ca
- Join now by printing and mailing an NDP membership form
- Join now by calling 1-866-525-2555
Help Choose a New NDP Leader
Those who are NDP members will elect the next leader of Canada’s New Democrats in March, 2012. We want you to be part of that choice. Join now and have a say in that decision.
You must join the NDP by February 18, 2012, to be eligible to vote on the NDP leadership.

Jack Layton and the Orange Wave elected 103 MPs in the federal election, becoming Canada’s Official Opposition. Since then, we have lost Jack, but we have not lost the momentum and excitement of the NDP’s breakthrough.
