Tis the Season

With the Christmas and Holiday Season is in full swing I wanted to take to take the opportunity to wish all of our Members at UAW Local 724 and their Families a Happy Christmas and New Year’s.   I also would like to thank all of our members who came out to vote in the November Mid-Term elections. A record number of voters exercised their right to vote and that is very encouraging considering the current political landscape in our country. On a very positive note 85% plus of the Lansing Area CAP Council endorsed candidates were elected. A big thankyou goes out to our CAP Board for all of the screening efforts that went into the endorsement process.  With the recent announcement of the GM Grand River Plant going to one shift in January and the announcement that Gm will be closing plants, and layoffs will be taking, place it’s important to remember how this will impact UAW Members and their Families. In 2008-2009 the American public, and UAW Members, helped save the Auto industry. Since that time the industry has realized record profits. All the while still exploiting the workers who gave the company those same record profits.  Our payback, as American Citizens and UAW workers, from the Big Three has been to build plants outside of the US, take the Corporate Tax Break and layoffs.  On a more positive note on Behalf of the entire Executive Board of UAW local 724 and all of our Members I would like to wish everyone and their families a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season.
