FCA US ANNOUNCES NEARLY $1.5 BILLION INVESTMENT IN STERLING HEIGHTS ASSEMBLY PLANT
  • Plant to be retooled to build next generation Ram 1500
  •  Brings total U.S. investment to more than $8.2 billion with nearly 25,000 jobs created since June 2009

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – FCA US today announced that it will invest $1.48 billion in its Sterling Heights Assembly Plant (Mich.) to retool it to build the next generation Ram 1500 and support the future growth of the Ram brand.

The Company also confirmed that production of the Chrysler 200 will end in December 2016 in order to begin the transformation of the plant.

Future plans for the Warren Truck Assembly Plant (Mich.), which currently builds the Ram 1500, will be announced at a later date.

This production action is subject to the formal approval of incentives by state and local entities.

On July 14, 2016, FCA US announced a total $1 billion investment in its Toledo, Ohio, and Belvidere, Ill., assembly plants to support the future growth of the Jeep® brand.

Since 2009, FCA US has announced investments of more than $8.2 billion and added more than 25,000 (including nearly 18,000 hourly) people in its U.S. operations.

As UAW members who are delegates to the Democratic National Convention make their way to The City of Brotherly Love, it’s an appropriate time to talk about Philadelphia.

Or Philly. Or “Phil-delph-ya” in the language of the locals. They do “tawlk” a little funny here. It may be pronounced “wa-ter” elsewhere in the United States, but it’s “wooder” in Philly. As in, “Yo! I’ll have a churry wooder ice, please.”

Graduate workers, who have been organizing for the past year, welcome recognition of needed changes from the Provost, Dean of Engineering

NEW YORK – In a rare email to Ph.D. candidates, Columbia University Provost John H. Coatsworth announced a number of changes to improve workplace benefits for many graduate workers. The announcement – which includes parental leave, childcare subsidies and changes in fees – comes as graduate workers have been joining together to fight for respect and their rights as Graduate Workers of Columbia-UAW (GWC-UAW).

Berkeley — Just over a third of non-supervisory manufacturing production workers in the United States and half of the nation’s manufacturing workers hired through temporary agencies rely on at least one public assistance program to support themselves or their families, according to research by the University of California, Berkeley’s Center for Labor Research and Education.

As presidential candidates from both parties debate how to revive American manufacturing, and while lawmakers at the federal and state levels promote subsidies to lure manufacturing jobs, the Labor Center calculates that low wages in manufacturing cost taxpayers approximately $10.2 billion a year in public assistance.

Volkswagen is refusing to negotiate with workers and choosing instead to use the legal system to evade that responsibility.

 Workers Memorial Day 2016: Dedicating Ourselves Anew

By UAW Region 8 Webmaster John Davis

On April 28, 2016, Workers Memorial Day will once again be observed. This day has been set aside to remember workers who died on the job since 1970. The AFL-CIO organized the event after the passage of the Occupational Safety and Health Act in 1970. Each year on April 28, labor pauses to remember those who died on the job in the past year.

 Thanksgiving Message from UAW Region 8 Director Ray Curry

Thanksgiving Day is right around the corner - a time of reflection and taking stock in the blessings in our lives. With the events of the past few days, it is easy to get depressed with the terrorist attacks in Paris. Our sense of security is shaken every time one of these attacks occurs and rightly so. It is important to remember that with all the problems we have, the United States is still the greatest nation on Earth.

 Why Can’t Every Day Be Like Labor Day

It is the first Monday in September. You slip out of bed while the family sleeps in. You reach in the closet and grab your “Union First Shirt” and your local union cap. Driving to the union hall you notice a nip in the air as Fall lies just around the corner.

Pulling into the parking lot at the union hall you jump out and start helping with the last minute decorating of the Labor Day Parade float. The parade begins and you walk alongside the float waving at the sparse crowd. Later standing in the crowd, you clap as the last Democrat in your state legislature gives a speech about the importance of raising the minimum wage. Heading back home, you switch shirts, grab your “born to grill” apron and spend the rest of the day stuffing yourself on ribs and potato salad. The plight of the poor bothers you as you watch football on your big screen TV and head off to bed.

 Food Stamps & Steak and Seafood: Fact from Fiction

By John Davis Local 2195 Webmaster and LUCA Advisory Council Chair

In February, Missouri State Rep. Rick Brattin introduced a bill to prohibit Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program recipients from using their benefits to buy "cookies, chips, energy drinks, soft drinks, seafood, or steak." Brattin’s bill seems unlikely to go anywhere, but the conservative media outlets are having a field day using the idea to demonize citizens unlucky enough to qualify for food stamps.

Remembering Selma Fifty Years Later
By UAW Region 8 Webmaster and LUCA Advisory Council Chair John Davis

On March 7 and 8, 2015, thousands of people descended upon Selma, Alabama to observe the 50th anniversary of an important event from the Civil Rights movement that has become known as “Bloody Sunday.” The event was marked with politicians, Civil Rights leaders, celebrities and activist coming together to remember the event from half a century ago. News networks from around the world attended the event with recounts of the day’s events being featured on TV, print and internet around the globe. However, fifty years ago the actual event was much different.

2014 Midterm Elections: It Is All About Social Security
By UAW Region 8 Webmaster John Davis
October 3, 2014


2014 midterm elections are looming large on the horizon. The midterms are always a difficult cycle to get a true grasp on America’s concerns due to lower voter turnout in the absence of a presidential election. However, we often lose sight of the fact that the House and Senate actually pass the laws that affect us day to day. Since the Supreme Court decided that corporations are people in 2010, money funneled from the wealthy have impacted our elections by flooding the airwaves with ads designed to muddy the issues around candidates and confuse America’s voters into voting for candidates whose agenda is to promote the wealthy.

Once again we prepare for the Labor Day weekend. Picnics, cookouts, and football help to celebrate the last hurray of summer. Over the course of time, the real reason for Labor Day has been lost to recreational pursuits, but we should always remember that Labor Day is the one day of the year set aside to recognize America’s workers. After all, it is America’s workers that built this great nation- not the robber barons and vulture capitalists on Wall Street.

Day two of the 36th Constitutional Convention began at 9:00 AM on Tuesday June 3, 2014. The first speaker of the day was Heather McGhee President of Demos. Demos is a public policy organization working for an America where we all have an equal say in our democracy and an equal chance in our economy.

Delegates to the 36th Constitutional Convention were greeted with balloons and banners as this day is reserved for electing your International Executive Board. This includes the President, Secretary Treasurer, Vice-Presidents and Region Directors. This day the delegates will elect the leadership to serve this membership over the next four years.

The 36th UAW Constitutional Convention is being held in Detroit, Michigan June 2-5, 2014. Every four years UAW locals across the country elect and send delegates to this Constitutional Convention to debate and vote on resolutions to the UAW Constitution and elect the International Executive Board. The UAW is truly a democratic organization, providing the membership the final say in how things are done.

Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr. 2013
by John T. Davis Region 8 Webmaster and LUPA Advisory Council Chair

When I think of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. - greatest comes to mind. But then what does it mean to be great? What places a person in that category? Maybe standing in the face of adversity to do the right thing? Or having the courage to stand up for the right thing when the public turns against you? Could it be defending the weak and offering a hand up rather than a push down? Finally- having the fortitude to forgive rather than retaliate when you have been wronged?

Two issues keep coming up:

Several retirees received two checks in the mail. These checks were for the stated reason that during Contract Negotiations employees that received an up front signing bonus for 1996, 1999, 2000 and/or 2003 were required to pay F.I.C.A. and Medicare taxes therefore there was a settlement made between General Motors/Delphi and the Federal Government that these bonuses were not "wages". If you received a check we suggest you cash and enjoy,

Most will be receiving a check from Delphi and or GM concerning a settlement over contract signing bonuses. GM and Ford sued the federal government over the taxes on those signing bonuses and won. This is for real - do not throw it away. Checks must be cashed November 13, 2012.

Mitt Romney- Just Like You and Me?

For the past four years the conservative media has hammered President Obama constantly, saying he is “out of touch” and “not like us.” Right wing bloggers have repeated the Kenya Prophecy nonsense.
Now they are hard at work trying to convince us that “Mitt Romney is just like you and me.” They would have us believe that Romney is a self made man, who has used the “American Way” to become a successful business man. But just how much do middle class Americans have with Mitt Romney? Actually very little if you look at who Romney really is. Read more >>>

However, the conservatives have been hawking the evils of the deficit and pointing fingers and screaming cuts. However it is important to understand the real cause behind the deficit. To understand the issue fully, we need to go back to where the issue began.
