Solidarity within the UAW is the coming together of a diverse group of people with common interests, but different perspectives, to develop a common vision and the framework for change. There are many more similarities in the challenges we face than there are differences as we come together as people with the same basic needs and desires. The newspapers inundate us with the changing of times as an abundance of challenges touch every area of our lives. I cannot stress enough the importance of standing together with our UAW sisters and brothers during these uncertain times.
As we approach upcoming negotiations with a company that has stripped away jobs in the United States and placed their investments in Mexico, we must be mindful of the uncertainty of our future. Furthermore, General Motors has been pushing the boundaries of outsourcing, using a large temporary workforce and forcing maximum overtime in order to obtain record profits. For this reason we must be united in our message and solid in its implementation. The theme for this year’s Bargaining Convention was “We Are One”, and it is my hope that we can all stand together in Solidarity in our fight to gain a fair and equitable contract for ALL of our UAW sisters and brothers.
In Solidarity,

Bill Reed, President
