We are planning a Retirement Party on Thursday, September 20, 2018, due to the large number of Body CAD employees retiring this year!  Save the date: 

Listed below are the locals that have Cedar Point tickets.    Please call the local for pricing and availability.   

     Our first retiree this year is Gary Ginnard!  He hired in at Ford in March of 1978. He is our third most senior designer.  He has been a union member since he hired in.

Take Action

Right now, Congress has a critical opportunity to strengthen workers’ rights supported by the UAW.

The Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, H.R. 2474, which would give millions of America’s workers additional protections to organize and negotiate for better pay and benefits, and a voice on the job.

The U.S. House of Representatives will vote next week on this crucial piece of legislation. But greedy CEOs will do everything they can to oppose working people standing together.

It’s no secret that the right to form a union is under attack. “Right to work” laws are spreading, while wages have stagnated. More than ever, we need our lawmakers to stand up for working people’s rights—that’s where the PRO Act comes in. It would:

  • Penalize employers who violate workers’ right to organize.
  • Help workers secure a first contract.
  • Protect workers who go on strike.
  • Close loopholes that allow companies to misclassify workers as independent contractors.

Working people deserve the right to organize and demand living wages, safe workspaces and good benefits—and it’s up to our members of Congress to protect and strengthen that right. Call your representative and tell them to stand up for working families and pass the PRO Act!
