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!
