Hello Members and all concerned,

As we know, due to the COVID-19 crisis many have been affected
and are out of work;
The need for food donations is greater than ever. The Gemma E. Moran/United Way Labor
Food Bank is experiencing a huge loss of food donations because of many factors, including
much lower donations from food collections and benefactors such as supermarkets,
who generously donate great quantities of food each week
and are restricted by fears of spreading the virus.

The Food Bank now has to purchase food directly from sources and could use our help!
Our members and EB employees in general have shown their generosity throughout
the years; if you would like to donate to the Food Center, there is a link below which will
take you directly to a green "Donate" button. Thanks for all you do!

Gemma E. Moran United Way/Labor Food Bank | United Way of Southeastern Connecticut

EARTHQUAKES, HURRICANES AND A PANDEMIC HAVE HIT THE ISLAND HARD It’s been a difficult stretch for Puerto Rico in the last couple of years. People there have been hit with hurricanes, earthquakes and now a pandemic. But whatever challenge is thrown at our 5,000 members who work at a variety of public and private entities, they know their UAW family is ready to pitch in.
CAMBRIDGE, MA -- Student workers at Harvard University made history today, voting in favor of ratifying their first union contract. The one-year contract agreement with the university will improve pay and benefits for over 4,000 student workers, and guarantee health and safety protections in the midst of a pandemic. The contract strengthens protections for student workers against discrimination and harassment, including racial discrimination and sexual harassment, and includes new provisions aimed at increasing job security for international student workers.
U.S. Attorney Matthew Schneider and UAW President Rory Gamble jointly announce that they had a productive and helpful first meeting to begin negotiations to further the cause of reform in the United Auto Workers union. U.S. Attorney Schneider welcomed the opportunity to sit down with the UAW’s President in order to work together toward improving the union for all its members. President Gamble appreciated the chance to meet with the Department of Justice so as to further his efforts at reforming the organization and to ensure integrity in the union’s leadership.
Brothers and Sisters, When I accepted the office of the presidency, I pledged to keep you updated on all of our reforms and progress on restoring our member’s trust in leadership. As you know, we have instituted a comprehensive reforms agenda and top-to-bottom review of our operations and financial house.

They are the heart and soul of the union. Here are just a few of the stories of UAW members stepping up to the challenge the world finds itself in today:
