Topic: “How Labor History Informs Today’s Technology Revolutions”
Bernie Hall is a fourth-generation Steelworker whose family has a long tradition of union activism. Joining USW Local 8183 in Bridgewater, PA, he served first as unit president and then president.
In 2011, Hall became one of the youngest ever staff representatives in the District. Since then, Hall has bargained in nearly every sector of the union, including negotiations with employers such as U.S. Steel, BASF, International Paper, PCA, Allegheny Technologies, Nova Chemicals, Robert Morris University and more.
Hall currently sits on the National Institute for Career Development advisory board and serves as a trustee to three of the Pennsylvania Heavy and Highway Construction benefits funds. He is a graduate of the Community College of Allegheny County labor management studies program and a board member for the Beaver County United Way.
Bernie will be discussing Southwestern Pennsylvania’s historic role at the forefront of the Industrial Revolution … and how that history can help advance workers’ rights in the many technology revolutions of today.
