As you may remember from the Region 1 CAP Council Meeting, we discussed starting a CAP Council in both Oakland and Macomb counties. Much interest and anticipation was generated during that meeting. Therefore, we are asking you to encourage your CAP activists to get involved. The more participants the stronger our CAP Council will be. In order for this Council to succeed, we need as many participants as possible.

The by-laws dictate that we need four (4) officers for each CAP Council. We ask that only members who reside in the respective counties take part in these councils.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Brian Negovan, Region 1 CAP Coordinator, at 586-427-9200 or bnegovan@uaw.net .

Region 1 is excited to introduce the UAW Region 1’s Solidarity Riders. This motorcycle rider’s group will serve to (recreationally) build camaraderie and social networks for the brother and sisters in our region who ride. Solidarity Riders will also be supporting and advancing the causes of Region 1 and our International Union (e.g. the Labor Day Parade) by simply doing something many of us love to do, RIDE.

All active and retired members of UAW, Region 1 and their spouses are invited. We must insist, however, that only motorcycles made in the USA (preferably Union Made) participate.

Please direct questions to your local union local officers or contact Tony Feyers at 586-427-9200.

Riding season is here!!

WHAT IS V-CAP?

V-CAP is the UAW’s political action fund made up of voluntary contributions from UAW members, retirees and their families. The money is used to support pro-worker political candidates who have earned the endorsement of the UAW Community Action Program (CAP).

WHY SHOULD I GIVE TO CAP?

From taxes and trade policy to retirement security and health care to education and infrastructure – politics affects our daily lives. That’s why it’s essential for working families to make our voices heard in local, state and national politics by supporting candidates who support us. One of the most effective ways to do that is by contributing to V-CAP.

LANSING, Mich. -- Michigan’s state capitol building will remain open to citizen demonstrations after workers filed suit and won a temporary injunction against arbitrary closure of the building during massive protests against anti-worker, anti-family legislation supported by Gov. Rick Snyder. 

About 3,000 demonstrators were inside and around the Capitol today, protesting Gov. Snyder’s plan to push a radical change in Michigan’s labor laws through the legislature with little advance notice and no public hearing.  Michigan State Police responded by closing the building, shutting citizens out of the legislative process.
