April 28 is Worker Memorial Day. This year our theme is: "Safe Jobs, Save Lives, Make Your Voices Heard." I am asking each Local Union President and Bargaining Unit Chairperson to plan a Worker Memorial Day event at your worksite or Local Union hall, and to do all you can to encourage participation of our members and employers.
Assuring work place safety should be a priority in everything we do. I am proud of the efforts Region 2-B Leadership and our membership has put forth in 2013, and I am even more pleased to report that there has not been a single work place fatality in the UAW in the entire calendar year 2013 and there has not been a fatality so far this year. Congratulations and thank you to all who have made that extra effort to assure our members go home to their families at the end of their shift.

So-called right to work laws are wrong for working and middle class families. These laws make paying union dues optional - even though unions are required by law to represent all workers under their agreements. In other words, the laws give people the right to shirk - since all the benefits of a union contract still cover everyone, regardless if they pay dues or not. As a result, unions will have trouble representing members and negotiating contracts because bargaining power will be lost.
The effort to pass a right to shirk law is currently under way in Ohio. Recently these laws were passed in Indiana and Michigan. In Ohio, the same people who wanted to take away our collective bargaing rights with Senate Bill 5 are behind the right to shirk. It's crucial that we educate ourselves and our co-workers, families, neighbors and friends about the truth behind this deceitful effort. When was the last time billionaires spent millions of dollars to give more rights and freedom in the workplace?Read more >>>
