Brothers & Sisters, it is with sadness I come to you with news that we lost a Healthcare Worker

from AFT Local 5123, to COVID-19 on 5-19-2020. Our sister union member wasn’t provided adequate PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) for the work she was assigned. The shortage of PPE puts workers at risk as the state begins to open, the shortage will affect more and more industries. Without proper protection the pandemic will linger longer and longer with more and more deaths occurring. We want our employer Yale New Haven Health to step up and protect their healthcare workers which wll in turn protect our community.

Four AFT Local unions are hosting a rally to bring attention to this issue with a demand for the Federal Government to step up and utilize the Defense Production Act to start manufacturing sufficient PPE. As well we want to hold all employers accountable to provide Safety, Protection & Respect in the workplace.

We invite you and your membership to join and participate in our Rally scheduled for May 30, 2020 Registration starts at 10:00 AM.  (See Flyer below)

We plan to also do a food drive for The United Way/ Gemma Moran Food Bank. 

WE NEED LABOR TO MAKE STRONG SHOWING. 

Thank you

Dale Cunningham, Sec/Treasurer Local 5049

On December 11, 2020, the members of UAW local 1508 in Green Island, New York, ratified a final closing agreement after Honeywell representatives notified employees in May of their plans to close the Green Island manufacturing facility and transfer all manufacturing to South Bend, Indiana by mid-2021.

Buying union and buying American shows our willingness to buy only the very best for our loved ones and support fairness and dignity on the job. We also support efforts to keep America strong by raising the standard of living, adding to the economy and saving jobs that may be lost to other countries. The job you save could be your own!

Buying American-made is good.
Buying Union is BEST!

“Over the past year, as Ford and the U.S. auto industry faced unprecedented challenges over the CoronaVirus pandemic, Gary Johnson worked tirelessly with the UAW and our members to address the serious health and safety issues in our workplace with collaboration, honesty and real concern. Although we had differences at the bargaining table, Gary always understood that ultimately UAW members were his family too and it was reflected in the way he approached bargaining. We wish him well in his retirement.

Finding products made by union workers in the U.S. can be tough, especially when it comes to buying a vehicle. If you’re getting a new vehicle for someone on your holiday gift list it’s easy to figure out if that car was made in the U.S. by union workers but you need to know where to look and how to decipher the info.  Start by picking a vehicle from the UAW’s 2021 Union-Built Buying Guide. Then, check the vehicle’s VIN – Vehicle Identification Number using the guide below.

“Today’s investment announcement of $76 million builds on the public's demand for the quality engines and trucks produced for General Motors by the women and men in Tonawanda and increases investment in Parma production as well. As a team, UAW built trucks like the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra continue to be best in class. Today’s investment rewards that quality and success with a commitment to increased production.”
