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.Read more >>>

Side by side, women and men are building a stronger union every day. We salute UAW women everywhere. Here’s the story of one noteworthy UAW woman: Dottie Jones.... Read more >>>

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.

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.
“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.
