Labor Voices: Unions protect members, communities
Last week, as all of you know FCA, Ford and GM announced their intention to cease production at plants across North America through the end of March in order to ensure the health and safety of employees during the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis.
The UAW fully supports this action.
But I do want to take some time to recognize the many heroes among us, many UAW members, who soldier on despite the dangers because of the essential role we all play.
UAW nurses, social workers, government workers, public safety officers and our factory workers keep our economy afloat. These are American heroes.
