This week, UAW members will gather in Washington D.C. for the 2018 National Community Action Program (CAP) Conference.

Over 1,100 UAW members will attend the four-day conference, which gives members a look at the union's legislative and political priorities for the coming year. This year's conference will focus on immigration, international trade, job creation, and tax reform.

American consumers can make a difference for working men and women when they buy products made right here in the United States, UAW President Dennis Williams told CAP delegates Sunday night.

The program will launch on March 7 with more details to be released soon.

“We believe things change by the power of the wallet,” said Williams.

What have we learned from our first year under Republican control of all branches of government? Elections matter. The mid-term election is critically important. And when we vote, we must not be taken in by hollow promises. We must not be distracted or deterred from our course by the peculiar distractions of this government. We must insist on something better from Washington. We do not want more politicians who forget about working families after Election Day.
