What a sad day for our nation and for all those who stand up and speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. Ruth Bader Ginsburg blazed a trail for civil rights and women’s rights and the sanctity of our constitution in her 27 years as a Supreme Court Justice. No words can do real justice to her contributions to the highest court in the land and her contributions to our nation. To this courageous champion of women’s rights and worker’s rights and equality for all.

TOLEDO - UAW elected delegates in Ohio and Indiana met today to fill the vacancy of the Regional Director - a position with a seat on the UAW International Executive Board and elec

“We are proud today to announce for our Ford UAW members and our nation that Ford is building this new plant to assemble the truck of the future -- a battery electric Ford F-150. Where once the Mustang changed America, UAW members will now build the truck that will change America -- Built Ford Tough by UAW members.”

Dear Union Brothers and Sisters:

Today we enter the 4th day of our National Strike with General Motors. I can report to you that as of today, some progress has been made, but there are still many of our Memberships’ issues that remain unresolved. Your elected Bargaining Committee and the UAW International Staff have been working long hours each day for weeks negotiating on our Members’ behalf. The process of meeting in subcommittees and main tables will continue this weekend and beyond, if a Tentative Agreement is not reached.

At 11:59, UAW-GM workers began their strike.

Labor Day not only reminds us about the importance of unions and solidarity amongst workers, but it's also one of the last holidays in the summer heat.

It's the perfect time for UAW members to fire up the grill, then kick back with a cold one and enjoy a little quality summer time with fellow workers, friends and family. Now, there's an easy way to make sure that your supplies are union-made!

Members of UAW Local 668 are celebrating a century of manufacturing at Saginaw Metal Castings Operations in Saginaw, Michigan. Workers at the company, which supplies parts for General Motors vehicles, have processed 45 million tons of iron and 2 billion pounds of aluminum over the past hundred years. The plant currently employs 476 workers, including members of UAW Local 668 and IAM Lodge 2839.

The UAW has one goal: support the U.S. worker in all aspects of their professions. That includes involvement in U.S. trade policy decisions where our overarching focus is creating good paying U.S. jobs —  now and in the future.

When a fellow union brother at Local 1588 at PPG Industries in Delaware, Ohio, became ill and doctors said he couldn’t leave the hospital until his house had an entrance wheelchair ramp, Local 1588 members stepped up and made it happen as a team and included the generosity of the local community.

International Youth Day was first coined by the United Nations General Assembly in 1999, and now the 12th day of August serves as an annual celebration of the role of young women and men as essential partners in change, and an opportunity to raise awareness of challenges and problems facing the world’s youth.

It’s no surprise that UAW members, who are known for bringing awareness to challenges faced in their communities, also empower and help youth across the nation. Today we take a look at some of the times UAW members were essential partners in change for our nation’s children:

The first Sunday in August is National Sisters Day, and your opportunity to show your appreciation for that unique bond only sisters can understand. What better way to celebrate than joining with your fellow union sisters in the Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW)?

On March 24, 1974, over 3,000 determined labor union women and supportive feminists from across the United States convened in Chicago to create the Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW). The UAW was a founding supporter of CLUW, which elected then-UAW Vice President Olga Madar as its first president.
