UAW Local 2195 Website Takes Honors at the 2011 LUPA Awards
During the 2011 Local Union Press Association (LUPA) Conference at the Walter and May Reuther Family Education Center, the 2011 LUPA Awards were presented. The UAW Local 2195 Website took two awards for communication excellence. These include:
Best Original News Article or Editorial
First Place: Local 2195
Communicator: John Davis
Judge’s Comments- Local 2195 webmaster John Davis does a fine job of putting a human face on Workers Memorial Day with his commentary on the tragedy at Massey Energy‘s Upper Big Branch Mine in Montcoal, W. Va., where 29 miners died in April 2010 following an explosion. Davis correctly places the blame on Massey CEO Don Blankenship and the propaganda machine he set in motion to blame the incident on unions.
Best Political Coverage

Third Place: Local 2195
Communicator: John Davis
Judge’s Comments- Local 2195 Webmaster John Davis illustrates Republican Congressional hypocrisy of voting against extending unemployment benefits while simultaneously championing extending tax cuts for the hyper-wealthy and financially aiding British Petroleum at a much greater financial cost.
Davis is also the UAW Region 8 webmaster and won four awards for the Region 8 website. He sits on the LUPA Advisory Council for Region 8 was reelected to a second term as the Chair of the LUPA Council.
