Forget Personalities and ‘Likeability’ – Who Will Lead and Who is Best on the Issues Critical to American Working Families?
Presidential political campaigns in the age of the 24/7 news cycle can be quite distracting. The media often supplies saturation coverage on inconsequential stories unrelated to the issues that directly affect our families such as fair trade, wealth inequality, the right to organize, and affordable higher education. Complex, but nonetheless critically important issues, just can’t seem to get traction in this environment.Read more >>>
Donald Trump is a salesman and in 2016 he’s selling hate. He’s branded Mexicans rapists and wants all Muslim-Americans to be registered in a database. When he attacks groups, it’s easy to forget he’s attacking real people, real UAW members. Here are two UAW brothers talking about what it’s like to live in the world Trump is creating...

When you cast your vote for president, your ballot will show a choice for our next president. The nominees from the two major parties and those representing the Green and Libertarian nominees have spent a lot of time addressing voters under age 35 because they’re an important voting bloc in this election. Young voters face deep concerns particular to their demographic such as repaying skyrocketing college debt, finding a good-paying job to start a family with and feeling engaged in one of the most divisive election campaigns in our country’s modern history. Hillary Clinton is the most qualified candidate and will find commonsense solutions to those problems. She’s the best choice if you want a president who stands with Americans who work hard to support their families and want fair wages and benefits in return. Clinton understands that young people want a leader who fights against trade deals like the TPP (Trans- Pacific Partnership) because it benefits corporate profits at the expense of workers’ wages and the environment.

Miss the Vice Presidential Debate Last Night? We’ve got you covered.
Vice Presidential candidates Tim Kaine and Mike Pence went head to head last night. We’ve pulled some of the best tweets from the evening.
When local UAW members want to know what’s happening in their local and what the issues are that bring them together – like who the best candidate for workers is in the upcoming election – there’s no one they trust more than their union local. The UAW members who make that communication happen work tirelessly, usually on their own time, to bring it to their union sisters and brothers. Using all the platforms available to them such as social media, photography, video, publications, websites, email, texting and more, the UAW-Local Union Communications Association (LUCA) on Aug. 25 honored those hardworking communicators for a job well done over the past year.
