About Us

About Us

Pittsburgh Works Together knows that we need an economy that works for everybody. Created after meetings of union leaders and officials from the manufacturing, steel, and energy sectors, our organization is committed to working with leaders of tomorrow’s industries by reminding them that without everybody, there is no New Pittsburgh.

Mission

Pittsburgh Works is committed to creating an inclusive vision of economic progress that embraces and respects both traditional legacy industries and emerging ones, while honoring the diversity of cultures and traditions inherent to each, while ensuring a sustainable environment. We seek a Pittsburgh and a region in which the lines between “old” and “new” economy are erased and respect is shown for our work ethic and dedication to community, while building a future for all.
