Statement of Julie Kushner, Director, UAW Region 9A on the UAW Endorsement of Secretary Clinton for President

The next four years will be critical for expanding the labor movement, especially in places like Region 9A where thousands of workers are actively seeking to join the UAW. Keeping a Democrat in the White House is critical to our success. The appointments made by the president to the National Labor Relations Board, the Supreme Court and lower federal courts, for example, greatly impact our ability to move forward a progressive agenda.

UAW Cafeteria Workers In East Lyme, CT

These are members of UAW Local 376!

Local 376 members in East Lyme tell us why having a union is important to them!

Congress will be voting in the next several days whether to authorize a vote on the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) Trade deal. A yes vote on Fast Track means that Congress will only be able to vote Yes or No on the TPP trade deal without any opportunity to provide input or make changes. The UAW is deeply opposed to this manner of passing any legislation particularly trade laws that have a great impact on our members and working families across the United States.

In 1957, UAW President Walter Reuther introduced Eleanor Roosevelt to delegates at the union’s convention as the “First Lady of the World.”International Women’s Day is a fitting occasion to celebrate the proud international history of Reuther, Roosevelt, and the UAW; then recommit ourselves to working women’s international solidarity.

 

UAW members from Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Puerto Rico and Rhode Island spent time in January lobbying their Senators and Congresspeople at the UAW CAP Conference. Two groups of UAW Region 9A CAP delegates from Massachusetts and Connecticut filled the day with at least six stops to congressional offices. Their agendas included talking about important legislative issues, but they also wanted to witness the fruits of their labor.

UAW congratulates President Obama on his re-election

DETROIT – The UAW is proud to congratulate President Obama on his electoral victory in the 2012 election. It is with great pride that in large part because of a nationwide, grassroots effort by our active and retired UAW members, along with our progressive allies and dedicated community leaders, President Obama won re-election and remains our president for four more years.
“President Obama stood by American workers in their darkest hour, and UAW members and citizens in communities that are part of the thriving auto industry, are grateful for his willingness to bet on us,” said UAW President Bob King.

“Today, the domestic auto industry is roaring back, with investment in factories, new workers and manufacturing returned to our country. This remarkable turnaround is the product of government, labor and community working together to find solutions to our nation’s problems and today it is driving the country’s economic recovery,” added King.

This 2012 election was successful because of the tireless commitment of working people who held steadfast in their belief about the kind of leader America needs: someone who believes in a better America with middle-class jobs, a strong auto and manufacturing sector, Social Security and Medicare for our seniors, Medicaid for those in need, and a fair tax system that favors the 47 percent instead of rewarding the 1 percent.

Americans have spoken – and they want President Obama to stay on the path of continued improvement for our economy. This election illustrates the hope people have for social and economic justice for our entire country and creating a ladder to the middle class.
But our work is not done, and we will continue to fight for social and economic justice for all Americans.

 

We represent full and part-time clerical, technical and service employees at the Charles River Campus. You may be the only union member in your office or you could be in a department with sixty other union members, but there are about 550 of us in all.

You should receive a green contract book. A copy is also available online at the BU Human Resources website (bu.edu/hr) under "forms and documents" in the list of "quick links." This contract details the benefits and protections you are entitled to as a union member.

Anytime you have a conversation or meeting with your supervisor, or other member of management, that could lead to discipline, you are entitled to have a union representative present.  These are your Weingarten Rights.  Just call the union office at 617-262-6333 to set up a convenient time.

Founded in 1935, the UAW currently has about 400,000 active members in 600 locals across the US and Canada. In addition to the auto industry, we represent freelance writers, healthcare workers, casino dealers plus staff and faculty at many universities. This union has a proud history of supporting workers pursuits of economic gains and advancing civil rights for all Americans.

UAW dues structure calls for payment of 2.5 hours pay per month which is split between the local and the national UAW. In addition here at Local 2324 we have local charges $6.52 a month which is used for local needs only. No dues are taken out on the 5th week of a month with 5 paydays. At Local 2324 we also a one-time initiation fee of $30. This fee is taken out in three payments of $10. You must fill out the yellow card in your welcome packet and return it to the union office. Dues are not deducted until 45 days of your being hired.

No one is required to join the union.  You may choose not to become a union member. However, non-members are required to pay an agency fee which is equal to union dues. Agency fee payers receive the same benefits and protections as union members but have no voting rights or influence in how the union is run.

Should you have any questions or concerns about the union, the contract or your working situation please call us at 617-262-6333. Our office is at 650 Beacon St (near Bruegger's Bagels) in Kenmore Sq. You can email me at gboag@local2324uaw.org.

Thanks,
George Boag
President
