UAW Local 571


The Civil and Human Rights Committee is here for our Members

The Civil and Human Rights Committee is an essential guardian of the “No Discrimination” policy of our union.  Members of this committee fulfill the local union’s commitment to assure members full rights regardless of religion, race, creed, color, sex, political affiliation, national origin, age, disability, marital status or sexual orientation.

We are a committee dedicated to the civil and human rights of each of our members 

Need someone to talk to about an issue or problem you may be having, but don't want to necessarily talk to a Councilor or Grievance Rep? 

We can help

We can help you evaluate your situation for appropriate action, and if necessary, help you through the process of approaching your Councilor to get an issue resolved.

One of our goals is to also help educate and enlighten our membership on issues and topics that are relative now.  Through planning, implementing and promoting programs like civic, labor movement and community outreach, we will help recognize the need to ensure compliance of civil and human rights, protect from discrimination, civil liberties, equal opportunity, equal access, equal protection and all rights afforded under the Constitution of the United States of America.   

We will also educate our membership on the rich history between Walter Reuther (UAW President, 1946-1970) and Dr. Martin Luther King and how they helped shape the civil rights movement. 

 We will feature key articles and happenings in our area.  For more information, visit the Civil and Human Rights Committees homepage.
