UAW-LUCA (Local Union Communication Association)

Founded in 1978, UAW-LUCA helps UAW local unions produce top-quality, effective communications. UAW-LUCA provides information, training and communications materials for the union’s locals across the U.S., as well as in Canada and Puerto Rico, through a members-only cloud sharing, called the LUCA Cloud where materials can be downloaded and posted. Member locals can also get free training and assistance in setting up a free website through the UAW’s SolidWeb program.

Through LUCA, members can share information about issues and events, exchange communication ideas and tips, and learn from their peers. UAW-LUCA also conducts regular conferences for local communicators and holds an annual Excellence in Communications contest for newsletters, websites, video and social media to recognize quality work of local union communicators.

LUCA membership is free to all UAW local unions. Register your local for LUCA membership here.
