Education

“Generations of auto workers got up every day in the Detroit area and put their grit and sweat into building GM as a company.
Celebrate the Victories of the Past, the Promise of the Future The hours are brutally long; overtime pay doesn’t exist. Workplace safety is unheard of. Limbs are lost, and yet the machines grind on, indifferent to your suffering. Do you want to keep your job and feed your family? Your boss wants his roof repaired and a gift of his favorite liquor, too

Greetings:

Workers at the VALEO Highland Park plant will be voting to join the UAW on Tuesday, August 13, 2019, and Wednesday, August 14, 2019. To show our solidarity and strength, I am requesting that all UAW Region 1 local unions send volunteers to support this organizing rally and to wear red on those days.

 The plant is located at:

VALEO

12240 Oakland Parkway

Highland Park, MI 48203

 

We are pleased to announce this year’s recipients of the UAW Region 1 Director’s Scholarship Awards.  A selection committee screened the applications and selected 40 candidates for this year’s awards.  Each winner was awarded $500.00.

All winners will be notified in writing.  They will also receive paperwork to complete before the awards are sent to their college or university.

The UAW Education Department will hold its 2019 Family Scholarship Program  at the  Walter and May Reuther UAW Family Education Center on July 21 -26, 2019.

CAP Committees Educate Members About the Issues

There’s a direct relationship between the ballot box and the bread box, and what the union fights for and wins at the bargaining table can be taken away in the legislative halls.
