President Rory L. Gamble: “Owen Bieber’s death is a loss for our union and all working people. He was a man of incredible leadership.

The UAW International Executive Board is deeply saddened at the passing today of UAW beloved President Emeritus Owen F. Bieber at age 90.

Take Action

Owen Bieber touched the lives of many during his career, including many UAW members and their families. During his 12 years leading the world’s most powerful union that was 1.1 million members strong, he had a hand in supporting struggles for human rights from Africa to Eastern Europe, and advising President Bill Clinton on labor and economic issues.

Bieber’s work as a union leader went beyond rallies and negotiations. The UAW supported labor and civil rights movements with leaders across the globe, where the stakes were about more than higher wages. He is a leader that will be missed, but never forgotten. Do you have a story about Owen? We'd like to hear it!
