DETROIT – A large and diversified group of partners have come together to create an urban park in the middle of an industrial neighborhood, and they are seeking support from the community.

The Fort Rouge Gateway Project, or FRoG, is a partnership of 16 entities covering private enterprise, non-profit, local government and education. They have joined forces to create a “pocket park” and historical commemorative site in southwest Detroit in the shadow of the newly erected Fort Street Bridge.

A Statement from UAW President Dennis Williams Regarding the Orlando Attacks

UAW members are heartbroken over the senseless attacks in Orlando. We join our brothers and sisters in the labor movement and Americans everywhere in denouncing the hate that has yet again taken innocent lives and devastated our nation. We offer our prayers to the families of those killed and injured, the city of Orlando and the LGBT community. We continue to stand in solidarity in our commitment to the values that unite us, and not divide us.

UAW members are workers who believe in collective bargaining rights. We know they’re the foundation of fair treatment in the workplace, good health care coverage for our families, job safety, retirement security and everything we negotiate as equals with management. Voting for Donald Trump for president in November is the same as voting against your own collective bargaining rights. Trumps words and actions tell us that. Read more >>>

Graduate workers, who have been organizing for the past year, welcome recognition of needed changes from the Provost, Dean of Engineering

NEW YORK – In a rare email to Ph.D. candidates, Columbia University Provost John H. Coatsworth announced a number of changes to improve workplace benefits for many graduate workers. The announcement – which includes parental leave, childcare subsidies and changes in fees – comes as graduate workers have been joining together to fight for respect and their rights as Graduate Workers of Columbia-UAW (GWC-UAW). The announcement answers calls for change the group has been raising and builds on previous changes that have occurred since graduate workers began organizing.

Berkeley — Just over a third of non-supervisory manufacturing production workers in the United States and half of the nation’s manufacturing workers hired through temporary agencies rely on at least one public assistance program to support themselves or their families, according to research by the University of California, Berkeley’s Center for Labor Research and Education.

As presidential candidates from both parties debate how to revive American manufacturing, and while lawmakers at the federal and state levels promote subsidies to lure manufacturing jobs, the Labor Center calculates that low wages in manufacturing cost taxpayers approximately $10.2 billion a year in public assistance.

Deception seems to be the name of the game at Volkswagen. As if the diesel emissions scandal wasn’t enough, Volkswagen is now deceiving working people at its plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Workers in the skilled trades division of the plant last year voted overwhelmingly to join the UAW to create a better workplace. Volkswagen executives promised to respect the workers’ vote, but now the company is going back on its word.

Volkswagen is refusing to negotiate with workers and choosing instead to use the legal system to evade that responsibility.

Send an email to Volkswagen executives to tell them to sit down and negotiate with working people in the skilled trades division of the Chattanooga plant.

UAW Retiree Thomas Kelly wins Michigan Heritage Award

Michigan Heritage Award honors those who continue their family and community folk traditions with excellence and authenticity.

UAW retiree Thomas Kelly says he sings in an a cappella gospel quartet because The Lord calls him to do so. At 102-years old, the former maintenance worker at Chrysler’s former Eldon Axle plant remains grateful for a long life that’s had a lot of blessings: his spirituality, family, a beautiful voice, and a UAW retirement that has allowed him the financial ability to continue to sing for four decades after he retired.

Add another blessing to the list: Earlier this month, he was named one of the 2016 Michigan Heritage Award recipients, which honor individuals who continue their family and community folk traditions with excellence and authenticity. The awards program is administered by the Michigan State University Museum’s Michigan Traditional Arts Program with support from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs.

Kelly will receive the award in a ceremony on Aug. 14 in Lansing. You can read more about Brother Kelly in the March-April issue of Solidarity magazine.

Photos: Fight for $15 National Day of Action

UAW members around the country join with Fight for $15. Click the photo to view the full gallery:

 

 

Days after millions of workers in California and thousands in Pennsylvania won historic pay increases to $15/hr and amidst ongoing negotiations for $15/hr for millions more in New York, the unstoppable momentum of the Fight for $15 campaign for $15 and union rights continued to build as underpaid workers across the globe said they waged one of the largest-ever day of strikes and protests on April 14.

Fast-food workers went on strike in a record 300 cities and tens of thousands of underpaid workers—including home care, child care and higher education workers—led hundreds of protests from Manchester, NH to Memphis, Tenn. to Marina Del Rey, Calif. Around the world, workers will join in, with protests expected in more than 40 countries on six continents.

American families are being forced to scrape by because big corporations are ripping off workers, ripping off taxpayers, and ripping off communities. To get richer and richer, big corporations manipulate the rules to avoid paying fair wages and their fair share of taxes, forcing working people and taxpayers to foot the bill. As a result, workers and communities are being starved of the money needed to build a bright future, and left with impossible choices over how to care for their children and elderly parents and how to meet their basic expenses.

The workers’ protests, timed to hit just before Tax Day, zero in on McDonald’s, highlighting how the world’s second-largest employer and the industry leader in the fast food and service economies is driving a race to the bottom that is undercutting wages across the economy and resulting in nearly 64 million workers being paid less than $15. The workers also highlight how McDonald’s tax avoidance around the globe hurts governments, workers, taxpayers and consumers.

CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee — Working men and women at Volkswagen today won an important victory following an order by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) supporting efforts among skilled-trades employees to secure meaningful employee representation.

A three-member NLRB panel denied Volkswagen’s request for the agency to review a December 2015 election in which skilled-trades employees in Chattanooga voted overwhelmingly to designate UAW Local 42 as their representative for the purpose of collective bargaining. Today’s order, in effect, upholds the results of the election, which the NLRB supervised.

Statement from UAW President Dennis Williams on Ford Mexico Announcement

The following is a statement from UAW President Dennis Williams regarding Ford Motor Company’s announcement today that it will build a new assembly plant in Mexico:

Today’s announcement that Ford is investing in Mexico is a disappointment and very troubling. For every investment in Mexico it means jobs that could have and should have been available right here in the USA. This is another example of what’s wrong with NAFTA and why the TPP would be a disaster for the citizens of the United States. Companies continue to run to low-wage countries and import back into the United States. This is a broken system that needs to be fixed.

The Food Bank of Eastern Michigan has worked tirelessly to provide water to the residents of Flint ever since its water supply was contaminated.

“The food bank has put out 12 million pounds of water in three months”, said Bill Kerr, president of Food Bank of Eastern Michigan.

A Statement from UAW Vice President Norwood Jewell on FCA Announcement about Sterling Heights Assembly

A Statement from UAW Vice President Norwood Jewell on FCA Announcement about Sterling Heights Assembly:

While today’s announcement of a shift reduction at Sterling Heights Assembly is unfortunate, it is not unexpected. FCA is not the only company experiencing a slow market for small cars. On a bright note, there is a strong demand for larger-sized vehicles. The company has been planning to increase its capacity to build more trucks and SUVs. I believe that in the long term this move will be a positive one for our members and the company.

Coverage of the Land Fill Free announcement last week. Read more >>>

Chairmen Mike Branch, President Gordie Fletcher and District Shop Jeramy Huber are attending Sub Council in Detroit. They have been informed the membership should be made aware that the legal services benefit will end NEXT year, not this year. Any new business that is initiated in 2013 will be carried over until it is finalized, but this service will not be available in 2014. All members are encouraged to use the service while it exists. Please have your will or other transactions in process before December of 2013.

Additionally, members will see, within the next few pay checks, an imputed income for legal services of $81.47. This is not a deduction. It is the total cost of our legal service benefit and will be taxed as income. That is NOT the amount of the tax.

An imputed income of $81.47 at a tax rate of 28% will equal about $23 deduction.

So, the amount of tax that the average member will pay is $23.

This is the same deduction that happens every year of the agreement that we have legal services. Please understand that you will not have $81.47 deducted from your pay. That is the amount that will be taxed at your current rate of tax.

The GMCH Lockport Site has been in the process of seperating from the Delphi (former bld. 6) facility. You will see many changes happening in the near future. One change that is in effect right now is the phone system.

The system was Delphi's and we now have a new system. That means the plant main number has changed. If you are trying to contact the site please dial 716-439-5656.

This also means that when you call out from the site the caller ID will no longer say Delphi. This is an effort to further the distinction between the two companies and assure people that we are no longer a Delphi plant. We have been GMCH since 2009.

Below are a list of definitions of the abreviations on your pay stubs.

Local 686 Retirees Meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 5, 2013 at 2:00 p.m., 524 Walnut Street, Lockport.   Our guests will be from the Legal Services Department.
