About ICD

The Institute for Career Development, headquartered in Merrillville, Indiana, is a unique workforce training program for eligible members of the United Steelworkers.


The Institute, or ICD, was created in 1989 as a result of contract negotiations between the USW and major steel companies. Today, ICD has expanded to include rubber companies as well.
ICD is a joint initiative, with labor and management working together to provide educational services to Steelworkers.


Today, there are more than 70 Career Development Programs nationwide in the steel, tire and rubber, and glass industries.
