UAW Community Action Program

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.

Whether you are a union member or not, a number of major federal laws regulate the workplace and protect your basic employee rights.  Union members have the advantage of being able to negotiate for better protections than the law provides.

All of these laws are on the books today because organized labor union members worked tirelessly to persuade their elected representatives to support these necessary protections. That’s just one way union members help improve working conditions for themselves and all American workers.


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



Purpose of the Committee

The Citizenship and Legislative Committee, most often referred to as the Community Action Program (CAP), is the worksite political-legislative arm of the local union and the vital workplace political activator.
