We stand with BCTGM Nabisco/Mondelez workers rallying outside the company’s shareholders meeting today. Support union workers, fight for family-sustaining jobs, only buy AMERICAN-made Nabisco snacks!

In July 2015, Nabisco (Mondelez) announced it had decided to invest $130 million in a plant in Salinas, Mexico, instead of investing it in its iconic Southside Chicago Nabisco bakery. Mondelez called on the workers, represented by the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers (BCTGM) International Union, to come up with $46 million in annual savings (in perpetuity) at the Chicago facility for the company, or it would take the $130 million planned investment to its Salinas, Mexico bakery.

Bobbie Billingsley Worked to Help Others

Renee Seals bought a small metal cross to put on the door at UAW Local 112 when her friend Bobbie Billingsley suddenly died in a car accident. The 18-inch cross helped let members know that there wouldn’t be a union meeting that night.

Seals, a quality team member at the Vance, Alabama, Mercedes-Benz plant and a trustee of the local, brought the cross home with her to honor her friend who worked hard in the ongoing drive to bring UAW representation to the facility.

Town Hall Shows Unity, Community Support

James Martin is on temporary total disability because of the time he spent working at the Fuyao Glass plant in Moraine, Ohio. He suffers from diminished lung capacity that, according to his doctor, was caused by working with isocyanate glues and primers, powerful chemicals which are known to cause asthma and other breathing problems.

Martin’s life has been drastically changed by the fast-growing Chinese company’s inattention to worker health and safety. He knows he would likely still be working if he was represented by the UAW.

We are rerunning this story from last year's May-June Solidarity magazine for Mother's Day this year. Mothers are an important part of everyone's life and knowing the power of a union helps them is a solid reminder that the only place women will get equal pay and benefits is when they are in a union.

On May 10 workers at Volkswagen in Chattanooga, Tennessee, confronted VW leadership at their annual general meeting in Hanover, Germany, to tell VW to stop union busting. You can help support Chattanooga VW workers like UAW Local 42 President Steve Cochran who spoke up at that meeting.

The plant is VW’s only plant without a company-recognized employee union even though more than 70 percent of the skilled-trades workers voted to join the UAW...

While many courses have two or three so-called signature holes that are worthy of brochure status, every hole at Black Lake Golf Club could easily be on the front cover of a magazine promoting the course. That’s one reason it was named Golf Digest’s “100 Greatest Public Courses in America.”

May marks the 82nd anniversary of Victory in Europe (VE) Day. Three months later, the Japanese would surrender, Victory in Japan (VJ) Day. These two events were major milestones in the history of the United States and could not have been accomplished without the sacrifices of many, including those who never came home.

While the fighting in both the Atlantic and Pacific theaters raged, another battle was being conducted on the home front – keeping our troops and those of our allies supplied with enough arms, food, clothing and other necessities so they could defeat the Axis powers. That battle took the concentrated efforts of many UAW members.

Tell Fuyao, deliver good, safe jobs! Sign the Petition

As workers at the Fuyao Glass Plant in Morain, Ohio, continue their struggle to form a union, a new petition is making the rounds online. The petition calls out the nearly $22 million in tax incentives that Fuyao received from Ohio taxpayers. In return for that investment, Ohio taxpayers are calling on Fuyao to deliver good, safe jobs for the citizens of Ohio — not the kinds of jobs that would land a company on the National Council for Occupational Safety and Health’s Dirty Dozen list.

If you believe that workers at Fuyao in Morain, Ohio, should have good, safe jobs and the right to form a union if they so choose, then you can do something to help! Sign the petition now to tell Fuyao to respect workers’ right to have a real voice on the job through collective bargaining.

Urge Fuyao to respect workers’ legally protected right to organize and to establish a fair path for them to make that choice. Sign the petition now!

Virtually everything working people have gained to improve health and retirement security since the 1940s is now at risk, including Medicare, Medicaid, workplace health plans, the Affordable Care Act and Social Security.

Republicans in Congress are rushing to approve legislation that effectively would end these programs without providing a replacement for the 30 million Americans who will become uninsured.

If Portman and Trump had it their way, 30,000 auto-industry jobs might have never returned.

Innovation Ohio has just released a new report on the success of the auto rescue.  Its findings demonstrate that while it was characterized as a “lousy deal for Ohio” by Rob Portman at the time of its implementation, the auto bailout has in fact been a resounding success. Indeed, the auto industry is now thriving and is as integral to Ohio’s economic success as ever.
