These vehicles are made in the United States or Canada by members of the UAW and Canada’s Unifor union, formerly the Canadian Auto Workers. Because of the integration of vehicle production in both countries, all of the vehicles listed as made in Canada include significant UAW-made content and support the jobs of UAW members.

However, vehicles marked with a single asterisk (*) are also produced in Mexico. Vehicles marked with a double asterisk (**) are produced in Mexico and Canada. All Cruze hatchbacks and some sedans are produced in Mexico. The diesel version is manufactured in the United States by UAW members. The Chevrolet Equinox is manufactured in Canada by Unifor members and also in Mexico.

Beginning in mid-2019, all heavy-duty Chevrolet Silverados and GMC Sierras will be built in Flint, Michigan, only. In early 2019, the light-duty, regular cabs of both trucks will be produced in Mexico only.

When purchasing a vehicle marked with an asterisk, it’s important to check the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). A VIN beginning with “1” or “4” or “5” identifies a U.S.-made vehicle; a “2” identifies a Canadian-made vehicle; a “3” identifies a vehicle made in Mexico. Not all vehicles made in the United States or Canada are built by union-represented workers. Vehicles not listed here, even if produced in the United States or Canada, are not union made.

Union Matters

He Gets the Bucks, We Get All the Deadly Bangs

National Rifle Association chief Wayne LaPierre has had better weeks. First came the horrific early August slaughters in California, Texas, and Ohio that left dozens dead, murders that elevated public pressure on the NRA’s hardline against even the mildest of moves against gun violence. Then came revelations that LaPierre — whose labors on behalf of the nonprofit NRA have made him a millionaire many times over — last year planned to have his gun lobby group bankroll a 10,000-square-foot luxury manse near Dallas for his personal use. In response, LaPierre had his flacks charge that the NRA’s former ad agency had done the scheming to buy the mansion. The ad agency called that assertion “patently false” and related that LaPierre had sought the agency’s involvement in the scheme, a request the agency rejected. The mansion scandal, notes the Washington Post, comes as the NRA is already “contending with the fallout from allegations of lavish spending by top executives.”
