When you cast your vote for president, your ballot will show a choice for our next president. The nominees from the two major parties and those representing the Green and Libertarian nominees have spent a lot of time addressing voters under age 35 because they’re an important voting bloc in this election. Young voters face deep concerns particular to their demographic such as repaying skyrocketing college debt, finding a good-paying job to start a family with and feeling engaged in one of the most divisive election campaigns in our country’s modern history. Hillary Clinton is the most qualified candidate and will find commonsense solutions to those problems. She’s the best choice if you want a president who stands with Americans who work hard to support their families and want fair wages and benefits in return. Clinton understands that young people want a leader who fights against trade deals like the TPP (Trans- Pacific Partnership) because it benefits corporate profits at the expense of workers’ wages and the environment.

Pence won’t stand up for workers now, and he won’t if he’s the Vice President. Find out why.

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.

Officers & Staff Info

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 .

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!!

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).


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.
