A Special Convention was held on January 30, 2018  at UAW Region 9 Auditorium in Buffalo, NY at which Jeff Binz was elected Director, Region 9

Last week was a bad week for autoworkers and the future of our domestic industry. On Nov. 26, General Motors (GM) announced its decision to halt production at the Lordstown, Ohio, and Hamtramck, Mich., assembly plants, idling thousands of workers.

Last Friday, President Trump signed the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), with promises that it would stop companies from closing U.S. factories and opening new ones in low-wage countries like Mexico...

In a special episode, AFL-CIO's Julie and Tim discuss plant closures at General Motors with longtime autoworker Brad Markell.

Monday, the UAW lodged a formal objection opposing GM's plan to close four American auto plants in 2019. The complaint objected to GM's unilateral decision on the future of those facilities, without the agreement of the UAW, required by the 2015 National Agreement.
