We stand with BCTGM Nabisco/Mondelez workers rallying outside the company’s shareholders meeting today. Support union workers, fight for family-sustaining jobs, only buy AMERICAN-made Nabisco snacks!

In July 2015, Nabisco (Mondelez) announced it had decided to invest $130 million in a plant in Salinas, Mexico, instead of investing it in its iconic Southside Chicago Nabisco bakery. Mondelez called on the workers, represented by the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers (BCTGM) International Union, to come up with $46 million in annual savings (in perpetuity) at the Chicago facility for the company, or it would take the $130 million planned investment to its Salinas, Mexico bakery.

Bobbie Billingsley Worked to Help Others

Renee Seals bought a small metal cross to put on the door at UAW Local 112 when her friend Bobbie Billingsley suddenly died in a car accident. The 18-inch cross helped let members know that there wouldn’t be a union meeting that night.

Seals, a quality team member at the Vance, Alabama, Mercedes-Benz plant and a trustee of the local, brought the cross home with her to honor her friend who worked hard in the ongoing drive to bring UAW representation to the facility.

Town Hall Shows Unity, Community Support

James Martin is on temporary total disability because of the time he spent working at the Fuyao Glass plant in Moraine, Ohio. He suffers from diminished lung capacity that, according to his doctor, was caused by working with isocyanate glues and primers, powerful chemicals which are known to cause asthma and other breathing problems.

Martin’s life has been drastically changed by the fast-growing Chinese company’s inattention to worker health and safety. He knows he would likely still be working if he was represented by the UAW.

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 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.
