Greetings Brothers and Sisters. I hope that all of our members had a great summer with family and friends. As of the writing of this article the Big 3 contract deadline is looming. My hope is that the UAW leadership and GM will be able to reach an agreement that both addresses the member’s contract demands and prevents a possible work stoppage. Undoubtedly a GM work stoppage will have an immediate effect on our members at this Local. If a work stoppage does happen the Local will be here to help our members with whatever resources we can. With the current political environment it is important to remember that the middle class is slowly being eroded away. In today’s day and age no one wants to see a possible work stoppage/strike. If that does happen I have no doubt that the UAW Leadership and Bargaining team had no other choice. On the Local front our Alliance Interiors Unit, our Bridgewater Unit and our Kirchhoff Unit will have started or soon will start negotiations to bargain a new contract. I have no doubt that those UAW Bargaining Teams will be fighting for a fair and equitable contract for our members. Please make sure that you stay engaged and involved at your respective worksites. Its only thru the members Solidarity that our Bargaining teams and/or Elected Representatives have the most power. I want to personally say thank you to all of our members who work hard every day! Solidarity Brothers and Sisters!

“The laboring man...ought to remember that all who labor are their brothers, and that all women who labor are their sisters, and whenever one class of workingmen or workingwomen is oppressed all other laborers ought to stand by the oppressed class.”— Robert Green Ingersoll
