Across our union, thousands of UAW members participate in one or more local union standing committees. They are rewarded by a feeling of accomplishment, working with their co-workers on meaningful projects, and “being the change” they want to see for working people. But we need many more activists at the table to help.
By working every day to develop and expand our standing and other committees, we can help meet the needs of our members and community, limited only by our creativity and commitment.
Article 44 of the UAW Constitution requires each local union to establish 10 identified standing Committees, they are:
· Constitution and Bylaws
· Union Label
· Conservation and Recreation
· Community Services
· Civil and Human Rights
· Citizenship and Legislative (also known as CAP)
· Consumer Affairs
Using the links below you can learn the purpose of each committee and find resources and tools for each committee to carry out their duties.
