UAW Region 2B

If you are a retired member in Indiana or Ohio and have questions or concerns, please contact your state's respective Retiree Representative.

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.
Brothers and Sisters, On Monday, we celebrate the great sacrifices and life-changing contributions of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. His vision was one of inclusion, of nonviolence, of respecting the rights of each and every one of us and championing the fact that we are all Americans.

The tax credit of an additional $4,500 for union-made electric vehicles made in the U.S. is a win for UAW members, unorganized autoworkers, and the entire labor movement. The provision:

  • Supports the high standards in wages, benefits, and safety that UAW members have bargained for in the auto industry
  • Incentivizes nonunion companies to stop spending millions on union busters and to allow their workers to form their unions freely
  • Encourages U.S. auto manufacturers to bring back jobs they offshored

My Sisters and Brothers, I want to begin this first message of 2022 with a deep sentiment of gratitude for our union and for all the hard work, dedication, and fortitude our UAW family showed this past year. We had many challenges to face together, and I watched this membership rise to each one of them and support one another, as we always do.

As you may know, parts of Kentucky were devasted with a F3 tornado on December 11, 2021.
This tragedy has affected many of our UAW brothers and sisters, even damaging a UAWrepresented

“The UAW is proud to endorse Tim Ryan to represent Ohio in the U.S. Senate,” said UAW Region 2B Director Wayne Blanchard. “Tim has always stood alongside us, fighting against the outsourcing and unfair trade deals that have devastated our communities, working to take on China and ensure that the next generation of electric vehicles are made here in Ohio, and pushing for fair wages and benefits, and dignity on the job for all working people.  As our next senator, Ohioans can trust Tim to continue to be a champion for workers all across our state.”

"The vote is precious. It is almost sacred. It is the most powerful non-violent tool we have in a democracy." -John Lewis

There’s a direct relationship between the ballot box and the bread box, and what the union fights for and wins at the bargaining table can be taken away in the legislative halls.
