About Us

Pittsburgh Works Together knows that we need an economy that works for everybody. Consisting of union leaders and executives from the manufacturing, energy, and utility sectors as well as economic development professionals, our organization is committed to working to ensure that we have an economy to provide opportunity to all who seek success, regardless of education, background, or socio-economic status.


Pittsburgh Works Together is committed to creating an inclusive vision of economic progress that embraces and respects both traditional legacy industries and emerging ones.  We seek a region in which both “old” and “new” industries work side-by-side and respect is shown for our work ethic and dedication to community.
