Local 900 Labor Day Parade

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?

Take Action

Union members in the public sector are once again under attack and need our support. The Snyder-appointed Civil Service Commission is using the cover of a global pandemic to engage in underhanded union busting targeted at State of Michigan workers. This is not only an attack on dedicated state employees, but also their ability to provide quality public services to the people of Michigan. At a time when state workers have been on the frontlines of protecting the people of Michigan from the coronavirus, these anti-worker commissioners are trying to undermine the right of state employees to collectively bargain. Stand with our brothers and sisters and tell the Civil Service Commission to end these anti-union attacks.

As UAW members get involved in the communities where they live, they have a deep impact not just on their workplaces and their families, but on our nation. For UAW Administrative Assistant to President Rory L. Gamble, Allen Wilson, that meant a front row seat in the national spotlight as he served on the Wayne County Board of Canvassers.

The stakes? Who will be our nation’s next president.

Detroit - “Enough. Voters in Wayne County, Michigan and throughout this country should know that their votes aren’t subject to some arcane public relations spectacle using the courts and legislative procedures as a hammer to deprive them of their personal Constitutional rights to vote.

Today, in the ultimate insult to voters, the two leaders of Michigan’s Legislature are headed to the White House for an arm-twisting to artfully try to deny the counting of their legitimate votes.

Detroit - “In a challenging year, UAW members during this time of national crisis have pulled together to safely and productively make some of the finest quality vehicles and trucks in the world. This profit statement reflects our UAW members’ commitment to safety as they returned to the plant this spring, and their dedication to the quality and craftsmanship that is second to none.”q
