Statement on Memorial Day from UAW President Gary Jones

On this Memorial Day Weekend, I know you will join me in reflecting on why such a time is possible, and give thanks to the brave men and women who gave everything to protect our freedoms and safeguard this nation. These American brothers and sisters of ours gave the ultimate sacrifice — and they will not be forgotten. I would like to wish all of you a great Memorial holiday and hope it’s a time that finds you in good company with family, friends and community. Have a happy and safe holiday to you and yours!

Statement on Memorial Day from UAW President Dennis Williams

“Take time to remember what this holiday is really about – those who gave all for their country,” said UAW President Dennis Williams, director of the union’s Veterans Department. “The freedoms we enjoy today would not be possible without the sacrifices of many brave men and women throughout our nation’s history. They must not – and will not – be forgotten.”
