Today was a historic day for our union.
This morning, we inaugurated a new UAW tradition: the Members Handshake.
Instead of kicking off Big Three negotiations with a dog and pony show shaking hands with CEOs, we’re putting the membership first. Our UAW leadership went directly to the plant gates at Stellantis’s Sterling Heights Assembly Plant, GM’s Factory ZERO, and Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant to shake members’ hands and take their message to the bargaining table.
Leadership heard from members about what they want to see change at the Big Three. They also asked members what they are willing to do to win big, not just for autoworkers, but for their families, their communities, and working-class people everywhere.
Thousands of workers signed Support Cards, showing the companies we’re united in our fight for a strong contract. If you’re a Big Three autoworker, ask your local union about getting some Support Cards in your plant. You can also sign up online and share this link with your coworkers.
We have a once in a generation opportunity to make things right at the Big Three. We’re fighting to end tiers, to win back COLA and fair raises, and to secure our jobs in this transition to electric vehicles.
If we stick together, as a united UAW, there’s nothing we can’t achieve. Let’s go make history.
