Many of you may not know that the membership interviews candidates that have requested UAW endorsements for elected public offices.  Those members (screeners) then make a recommendation to Director Hall based on those interiews.  

We encourage each member who resides in Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb Counties to participate in candidate screening.  NO EXPERIENCE OR SPECIAL SKILLS NECESSARY. Screening will begin at 5 p.m. on August 22nd at UAW Region 1:

27800 George Merrelli Dr.

Warren, MI  48092

Registering to vote is not something most people think about outside of election time. However, as union members we should.

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?
