The UAW International Executive Board is deeply saddened at the passing today of UAW beloved President Emeritus Owen F. Bieber at age 90.

Flint Truck and AC Spark Plug Veteran to Lead UAW in 73 MI Counties - FLINT - Michigan Delegates from UAW locals in 73 counties met in Flint today to select a successor to long-time Regional Director Gerald Kariem, who became a UAW Vice President in January.

“Through collective bargaining UAW members were able to bargain profit-sharing to adequately reflect their role in FCA US’ profitability.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the keynote speaker on the final day of the 2020 UAW Community Action Program (CAP) Conference, quoted Walter Reuther as saying, “We can make America the image of what it really stands for.”

Take Action

Right now, Congress has a critical opportunity to strengthen workers’ rights supported by the UAW.

The Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, H.R. 2474, which would give millions of America’s workers additional protections to organize and negotiate for better pay and benefits, and a voice on the job.

The U.S. House of Representatives will vote next week on this crucial piece of legislation. But greedy CEOs will do everything they can to oppose working people standing together.

It’s no secret that the right to form a union is under attack. “Right to work” laws are spreading, while wages have stagnated. More than ever, we need our lawmakers to stand up for working people’s rights—that’s where the PRO Act comes in. It would:

  • Penalize employers who violate workers’ right to organize.
  • Help workers secure a first contract.
  • Protect workers who go on strike.
  • Close loopholes that allow companies to misclassify workers as independent contractors.

Working people deserve the right to organize and demand living wages, safe workspaces and good benefits—and it’s up to our members of Congress to protect and strengthen that right. Call your representative and tell them to stand up for working families and pass the PRO Act!
