UAW Members to Concentrate on Four Issues in 2018
When Republicans took complete control of the government in 2016, most union members understood that workers would take a hit, but we underestimated just how bad it would be, the UAW’s chief lobbyist told political activists Monday.
From attacks on health care, workers’ rights and immigrants to inaction on NAFTA, a lot of awful things are happening in Washington right now, Josh Nassar, the UAW’s legislative director, told delegates at the 2018 UAW Community Action Program (CAP) Conference.
“It’s been rough in the last couple of years,” Nassar said during an hour-long presentation designed to educate members about top legislative issues. “The right wing has been going after us pretty hard.”
