The Community Action Program of the UAW (CAP) is the union's non-partisan political arm. It is a department of the International Union.

It isn't a political party and it isn't tied to a political party. It endorses candidates, on the basis of their records and their stand upon issues that affect working Americans. Over the years, CAP Councils have endorsed Democrats, Republicans and Independents.

Local and regional political endorsements are made by the UAW's 160 CAP Councils or by other union bodies acting upon CAP Council recommendations. CAP Councils are made up of rank and file union members and retirees.

From trade policy to health care, education to retirement security, taxes to roads and highways, politics affects our daily lives.

That's why it's essential for working families to make our voices heard in local, state and national politics. And one of the most effective ways to do that is by contributing to our union's voluntary political action committee -- UAW V-CAP

Our contributions to UAW V-CAP are used to support the campaigns of pro-working family candidates who have earned the endorsement of the UAW Community Action Program (UAW CAP).
