Detroit, MI—United Auto Workers (UAW) Acting President Rory Gamble has announced the initiation of widespread ethics reforms. These reforms make clear the UAW is committed to establishing the right mechanisms and safeguards to protect the union from corruption and misfeasance.
Remembering and honoring our Veterans Today, on Veterans Day, across the nation we honor the proud individuals who served our country. We remember the men and women, and their families, who have made the ultimate sacrifice during wartime, and those who gave of their time and commitment during peacetime. The willingness of America’s veterans to serve our country earns them our lasting, dedicated gratitude.
So far, members of UAW Local 900 (Michigan ISA, Michigan Assembly), UAW Local 898 (Rawsonville), UAW Local 3036(Memphis HVC) , UAW Local 3519 (Washington HVC) and UAW Local 2280 (Van Dyke) have voted in favor of ratifying the Tentative Agreement with Ford.
Dear Union Brothers and Sisters: All unsettled proposals are now at the Main Table and have been presented to General Motors, and we are awaiting their response. This back and forth will continue until Negotiations are complete. The International Staff and your elected Bargaining Committee have been working countless hours to reach an Agreement on behalf of our Members, their families and all the communities affected by this strike.
Dear Sisters and Brothers, Thank you for your participation in last Sunday’s Solidarity Sunday; due to the overwhelming response from our members we will continue to hold “Solidarity Sunday” every Sunday until we ratify the contract at the UAW General Motors and Aramark picket lines across the nation and I again encourage your participation.

Across the country, UAW members, families and communities are proving the motto “all for one and one for all.” From Michigan to Ohio, Kansas to Kentucky—even in Wyoming people are standing side-by-side in solidarity, community organizations are donating food, diapers and necessary services, and businesses are providing strike discounts for UAW workers and their families.

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.

Selection Sets the Pattern for Autoworkers and Manufacturing

Detroit - United Autoworkers President Gary Jones announced today that the UAW has decided to proceed on bargaining with GM.

“Mary Barra said from the outset of these talks that we will stand up as we tackle a changing industry. We are ready to stand strong for our future,” said Jones.

Detroit - The UAW announced today the total votes for strike authorization of the Detroit Big 3.

The UAW Constitution requires members to vote and give authorization in order to strike if necessary. The vote does not mean there will or will not be a strike. It gives authority to the UAW International President and International Executive Board to call for a strike. Locals have also elected National Bargaining Representatives as part of the national bargaining team.

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!
