Statement from Local 6000 President Ed Mitchell on Civil Service Rule Changes


You may have read in the news media of the proposed civil service rule changes that would impact state employees. UAW International is working closely with UAW Local 6000 staff to access the proposal and respond. UAW Local 6000 is strongly opposed to the rule changes, which will negatively affect our freedom to collectively bargain the terms and conditions of our workplace.

We are asking each and every one of you to be available to attend the Civil Service Commission meeting if these proposed changes should come up for a vote. The earliest meeting would be on Wednesday-September 20, 2017 in Lansing. If these rule changes are adopted, every UAW Local 6000 member will be impacted.

Over the coming days, we will be releasing more information . If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Local at (800) 243-1985.

In Solidarity,

Ed Mitchell

Statement from UAW President Dennis Williams on Charlottesville

“The events in Charlottesville this weekend will long serve as a reminder that time has a way of washing away the tears of the past where hate bullied many Americans both in society and in the workplace through intolerance.

“The UAW condemns the hate and intolerance of the alt-right groups that led to such violence in Charlottesville. Every woman and every man is equal in their civil and workplace rights regardless of race, gender, religion or sexual orientation in society and in the workplace. We cannot take our freedom for granted, and we cannot forget the lessons that history forged through the sacrifice of many brave Americans in our military, in labor and in our civil rights struggles to secure those freedoms.”

DETROIT, MICH. – The UAW International Executive Board (IEB) on Tuesday passed a resolution calling for the release of unjustly charged and imprisoned trade unionists in South Korea, including President Han Sang-gyun of the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU) and KCTU General Secretary, Lee Young-joo. Specifically, the resolution calls on the Government of the Republic of Korea to “rescind all sentences and drop all charges against trade unionists that are related to peaceful protest, including those against President Han and General Secretary Lee...” Read more >>>

The 2016 elections are over; and, as you know, Mr. Trump and the Republicans now control the U.S. House, U.S. Senate, Supreme Court, and the White House. As a group they have wasted little time in trying to change health care, trade, immigration, and Social Security.

You, as UAW retirees, have fought long and hard for the benefits many working families currently enjoy. But these items, along with many others, are under attack. The UAW continues to lobby and fight, through the court system, to protect these issues along with collective bargaining rights, rights to organize and the right to peacefully assemble so our voices can be heard...

UAW President: My Union Suffered Some Setbacks, Here's What We're Doing About Them

 The UAW has a proud history in the south with more than 55,000 active members and 60,000 retirees. Last year alone more than 1,323 workers in the south voted to join the UAW, including Volkswagen workers in Tennessee who came back after a defeat in 2014 and voted to join us. The reason for their support is clear: the UAW delivers for our members.
