UAW Region 2B

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.

Call your U.S. senators and tell them to pass the PRO Act now!

The observance of Juneteenth is recognition of a profound milestone in our nation’s history.

A culture of belonging and caring for each other starts with each one of us.

Take Action

Union members in the public sector are once again under attack and need our support. The Snyder-appointed Civil Service Commission is using the cover of a global pandemic to engage in underhanded union busting targeted at State of Michigan workers. This is not only an attack on dedicated state employees, but also their ability to provide quality public services to the people of Michigan. At a time when state workers have been on the frontlines of protecting the people of Michigan from the coronavirus, these anti-worker commissioners are trying to undermine the right of state employees to collectively bargain. Stand with our brothers and sisters and tell the Civil Service Commission to end these anti-union attacks.

Juneteenth is an annual celebration on June 19 marking the end of slavery in the United States. Though the Emancipation Proclamation took effect in 1863, freedom would not come for many enslaved African Americans until years later. On June 19th, 1865, Union soldiers brought news of the Civil War’s end to Galveston bringing with them freedom for the 250,000 people enslaved in Texas. Juneteenth was made an official U.S. federal holiday yesterday.

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.
