To this courageous champion of women’s rights and worker’s rights and equality for all.

TOLEDO - UAW elected delegates in Ohio and Indiana met today to fill the vacancy of the Regional Director - a position with a seat on the UAW International Executive Board and elected Wayne Blanchard to fill the remainder of the term which ends in June 2022.

And as we embrace life, we remember those Americans who gave their lives that we might be free—from the beaches of Normandy to the coal camps of West Virginia to the churches of Birmingham and Charleston...

“For far too long it's been a fight to maintain the jobs we have while new automotive products and assembly are sent to Mexico, China and abroad.

Trade enforcement will help. But so too will Joe Biden once and for all closing the offshoring loophole in our tax code, imposing a new offshoring tax penalty and creating Biden’s new “Made in America” tax incentive. These are strong proposals to keep jobs here and more importantly make sure new products stay here built by our UAW workforce.”

Brothers and Sisters, As we celebrate Labor Day this Monday, I want to start by saying Thank You. This year has been utterly unprecedented, and we have had to deal with extraordinary challenges. I want to recognize the hard work and courage of my UAW family in facing this terrible pandemic and working to keep one another safe.
