Our union is embarking on an 11-state, 30-plus city bus tour with the Alliance for American Manufacturing to deliver an important message: that our domestic auto industry matters to all of us and all of us need to be in the fight to save it.
USW International President Leo W. Gerard will be joined by other union leaders, local leaders and mayors and the Alliance for American Manufacturing at stops along the way. Follow the tour virtually here, where you an watch video, see photos, read updates and get other important information.
In our union, in the U.S. and Canada, more than 350,000 of our members' jobs depend on the auto industry - from rubber, steel and glass workers to those who manufacture computer chips, paper used for auto catalogs and boxes, and auto parts. We also have members who make chemical brighteners used in cars, bank tellers who deal with auto loans, bus drivers who work for schools and health care workers whose jobs are in communities that would be hurt by the loss of auto jobs and the tax base they provide.
All of this leads up to a May 19 teach-in conference in Washington, D.C., where our union and others will talk to congressional leaders about why the General Motors plan fails America and about the importance of moving a plan that supports American jobs.
From there, our union will continue to put the pressure on our elected officials to push them to do the right thing for working families and our nation by supporting domestic manufacturing.
Besides the press release, you can download talking points and a set of principles our union supports. Please review them then talk to your co-workers, friends and family about this issue. We can't afford to let American manufacturing - and the American Dream - die.
