Honeywell employees protest, demand fair contract
GREEN ISLAND, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Local employees of a manufacturing company protested Wednesday in demand of a fair contract.
The Honeywell workers, based in Green Island, say the company refuses to come to an agreement with their union.
When local UAW members want to know what’s happening in their local and what the issues are that bring them together – like who the best candidate for workers is in the upcoming election – there’s no one they trust more than their union local. The UAW members who make that communication happen work tirelessly, usually on their own time, to bring it to their union sisters and brothers. Using all the platforms available to them such as social media, photography, video, publications, websites, email, texting and more, the UAW-Local Union Communications Association (LUCA) on Aug. 25 honored those hardworking communicators for a job well done over the past year.

Why We are Making Strides
Almost everyone has been touched by breast cancer in some way, so we've decided to make a difference by walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event.
The donations our team raises will enable investment in groundbreaking breast cancer research as well as provide free information and services for those diagnosed with the disease. More than 3.1 million breast cancer survivors will celebrate another birthday this year!
Why We Support the American Cancer Society
Saving lives from breast cancer starts one team, one walker, and one dollar at a time. We know that the American Cancer Society is the leader in the fight to end breast cancer. We know that supporting them will ensure that if you need someone to talk to anytime of the day or night, they’ll be there. If your friend is losing her hair from chemo, your mother needs a ride to treatment, or a loved one needs a place to stay when treatment is far from home, they will be there to help.
Join us and together we will walk for a world without breast cancer.

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 >>>

“Today is a great day for millions of hardworking Americans and working families because they are finally going to be rightfully paid for working overtime. I commend President Obama and Labor Secretary Perez for their leadership in adopting this commonsense rule that will raise the incomes of more than 4 million working people.

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 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.
“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.
