Statement of UAW Vice President Cindy Estrada, Director of the UAW Stellantis/FCA Department
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of our brother at Sterling Stamping Plant, Local 1264, who perished in an accident at the facility. Out of respect for his family, we are delaying release of our member’s name. We are working with our joint UAW-Stellantis Health and Safety Department to get more information on this fatal workplace accident and providing the necessary support for our Local 1264 Brothers and Sisters during this crisis. We are mourning the loss of our co-worker as we find out more about this incident. On behalf of all UAW members and UAW Stellantis members, our hearts go out to the family of our deceased Brother.”
Statement of UAW President Rory L. Gamble
“Our prayers go out to the loved ones of our brother who died last evening. Everyday our UAW members kiss their families goodbye and head to work proud of their craft and with hopes for their future. Today one of our members will not return home because of a workplace injury. Next week is Workers Memorial Day and the UAW will honor our members who died on the job from workplace injuries this year. One death is too many and we are committed to working through our Health and Safety Department to continue to stamp out the root causes of industrial accidents so that all our members return home safely each and every night.”
