Direction from International Union UAW President Rory Gamble.  All local union meetings and events continue to be suspended until April 15, 2021, due to Coronavirus concerns.

Every year, as I think about the Thanksgiving holiday, I always try to concentrate on the things that we as a union, and our sisters and brothers in solidarity everywhere, have to be thankful for. And, as always, there is much to be thankful for. But what to say about 2020?

Please be advised that the Zoo will be closed starting Friday, March 13 @ 5 pm until at least Wednesday, April 1, 2020 due to the COVID-19 virus. 

We will still be selling tickets eventhough they will be closed, tickets are good any day of their normal operating schedule (not including Lights before Christmas) 

“With the stroke of a pen, the long awaited “new NAFTA” or USMCA is now law. UAW members know far too well that trade agreements have not delivered the job security protections promised. That is why the UAW will be vigilant in monitoring this agreement, its implementation and the overall goal of protecting U.S. jobs and creating more of them.

We will be watching. We will be aggressive in pushing for enforcement of provisions. And we are under no illusion that this revised agreement alone will restore America’s middle-class manufacturing base.

“There are a lot of skilled and talented workers around Normal, Illinois who will make for an excellent Rivian workforce and build a world class quality product. Given the UAW’s history in Normal and our history with Ford Motor Company, we look forward to these jobs returning and UAW members having the opportunity once again to organize and form their local union which has meant so much to that community. It’s a great day for our UAW members, UAW retirees and for the surrounding community.”

"UAW members during the 40-day strike last fall received significant economic commitments to many plants. Under the direction of Region 9 Director Jeff Binz, the $6.7 million investment at GM’s Tonawanda Plant will continue UAW members’ quality work on the 5.3L V8 engines they provide. In Spring Hill, an over $40 million commitment under the direction of Region 8 Director Mitchell Smith will significantly expand the production capacity on the V8 engine as well.

Detroit - UAW Region 1D Director Gerald Kariem was unanimously selected by the UAW International Board to the position of Vice President and Director of the UAW Ford Department. Kariem will serve out the term left vacant when Rory Gamble was elected President last Fall.
