It was a rally organized at the last minute, but that did not stop over 100 current and former United Steelworkers from Weirton Local 2911 from coming out to show their support through negotiations with Arcelormittal.
They are working towards what they are calling a "far and equitable contract."
Union workers rallied while their president, Mark Glyptis was in Pittsburgh working with Arcelormittal.
The biggest theme of the day is that they stand together as one.
Union Vice President Bill Brenda said they are not only committed to their active members but also their retirees right here but also their sister plants across the country.
The union says they are fighting to "respect their past and protect their future."
Brenda said this is something that is not only important to them but also the community. He said its also important to the churches and school systems.
"When the economy is good, when people are working, they are contributing to the local community," said Brenda.
Walter Danna, who is the coordinator for retirees, said they are trying to get the best livable wage for a decent contract and that the retirees are behind them 100 percent.
Ed Conley, long term union official, said they were proud of their membership Wednesday.
As for what is next, union workers are not sure but stay optimistic.
Brenda said they are hopeful this rally across the United States will help turn the tide and just push the little bit they need to get a tentative contract.
Rallies were held at 14 other Arcelormittal locations across the country.
