Vibrant local unions and progressive social movements don’t just happen; they are planned for and worked on by people like you - members who care about the future and status of our union, members who care about what kind of future we want for all working families. One way to make a difference in all aspects of our union movement is through standing committees.

Local 14 UAW is an Amalgamated local therefore some committees are "Local" and some are "Unit" committees.  This means that anyone in any unit can be on a "Local" committee and only members of the particular unit can be members of the "Unit" committee.  

Local 14 Committees are: CAP, Civil & Human Rights, Recreation, Education, Women's, Veterans, Union Label

Powertrain Unit Committees are: CAP, Chaplaincy, Civil & Human Rights, Community Service, Education, Recreation, Women's.

A booklet describing the standing committees is also available.

One of the lesser known programs of the UAW draws its inspiration from the very core of what founded our union – compassion and caring. The UAW Chaplaincy program started in the mid-eighties as a pilot project at Local 599 in Flint, Michigan.

The Civil and Human Rights Committee is an essential guardian of the “No Discrimination” policy of our union.

The Education Committee is responsible for building the power of the movement through educating and training members of their local union.

The Citizenship and Legislative Committee, most often referred to as the Community Action Program (CAP), is the worksite political-legislative arm of the local union and the vital workplace political activator.
