Mr. Sandefur: I am in receipt of your email dated Wednesday, September 25, 2019, that I received this morning, Thursday, September 26, 2019 at 8:57 am. Let me recap the sequence of events regarding this very important matter for all our striking members and their families.
Dear Union Brothers and Sisters: All unsettled proposals are now at the Main Table and have been presented to General Motors, and we are awaiting their response. This back and forth will continue until Negotiations are complete. The International Staff and your elected Bargaining Committee have been working countless hours to reach an Agreement on behalf of our Members, their families and all the communities affected by this strike.

Across the country, UAW members, families and communities are proving the motto “all for one and one for all.” From Michigan to Ohio, Kansas to Kentucky—even in Wyoming people are standing side-by-side in solidarity, community organizations are donating food, diapers and necessary services, and businesses are providing strike discounts for UAW workers and their families.

Dear Union Brothers and Sisters:

Today we enter the 4th day of our National Strike with General Motors. I can report to you that as of today, some progress has been made, but there are still many of our Memberships’ issues that remain unresolved. Your elected Bargaining Committee and the UAW International Staff have been working long hours each day for weeks negotiating on our Members’ behalf. The process of meeting in subcommittees and main tables will continue this weekend and beyond, if a Tentative Agreement is not reached.

At 11:59, UAW-GM workers began their strike.

Labor Day not only reminds us about the importance of unions and solidarity amongst workers, but it's also one of the last holidays in the summer heat.

It's the perfect time for UAW members to fire up the grill, then kick back with a cold one and enjoy a little quality summer time with fellow workers, friends and family. Now, there's an easy way to make sure that your supplies are union-made!
