The last issue of Solidarity magazine for 2017 is online. In this issue we highlight the activities of our members who helped out in the hurricanes that hit Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, where help is still needed. Our members cut down trees, delivered food and water, as well as helped others with questions about applying for aid. We help, UAW President Dennis Williams says, because we don’t leave others behind.

We also had stories on ….

The new first-ever contract at the Baltimore Horseshoe casino. Members there know a winner when they see one.

Navistar workers in Ohio who want local governments to buy their product because it supports the jobs of thousands of Ohioans, including many not employed directly by the heavy truck manufacturer.

Getting the message out: Local union communicators are the primary source of information for our members. Many of them received awards for their great work in keeping our members informed.

A record number of “Rosies. Hundreds of UAW women helped set a new record for the number of Rosie the Riveters in one place.

And much more ….
