Building a STRONGER UAW

Thanks to the strength of our members, UAW has proudly stood up to significant challenges over the last few years.  We’ve made it through the deepest recession since the Great Depression and weathered a crisis in the auto industry.  Now that the economy is finally growing again, we’re facing a wave of anti-union attacks from billionaires and corporate interests like we’ve never seen before,

What are current UAW dues?

The UAW's current dues structure was established by the delegates to the 1967 Special Convention.  UAW members pay monthly dues equal to two hours pay or, for salaried workers, 1.15% of their monthly salary.  Public employees who are prohibited by law from striking are not required to pay into the International Strike Assistance Fund, so they could pay proportionally lower dues.   For members working part-time, dues are 1.15% of straight time gross monthly wages and .805% if the member is prohibited by statute from striking.

What are my dues used for?

Currently, 5% of dues are allocated to the strike fund.  Of the remaining 95%, 53% of member dues go to the local union to support members at the work site in negotiating and servicing.   The portion going to the International (47%) covers a broad array of support services for local unions including but not limited to:

  • Health and safety experts to investigate accidents and train members to fix health and safety issues in their workplaces
  • Legal staff to help locals win fights in court; for example, UAW attorneys have won major cases preserving retiree health insurance
  • Health care and pension experts to take on the employer’s consultants
  • Website, magazine and other resources to keep members informed
  • Financial analysts to help local committees understand their employer’s finances and business strategies, so that we can take them on and win  
  • Auditors to help local unions keep their books in good order, so they can stay accountable to members
  • Assistance for locals and members who are facing hard times or natural disasters
  • Organizers to build our density so we can win better agreements
Note that depending on the level of strike activity during a month, some or all of the 5% to the Strike Fund may be rebated to locals and the International.

Volkswagon and the UAW

The following is an update on our organizing efforts at VW and the many challenges we face in this battle ahead.

Be sure to check out this video of Rep. George Miller (D-CA) joined Rep. Pocan on the House Floor to speak out against the interference from outside parties and politiciansRep. Miller & Rep. Pocan on UAW Vote in TN on youtube.com.


 

In addition, there is a great op-ed on why the NLRB should overturn the VW vote in favor of the UAW's appeal. Check it out:

NLRB must overturn the tainted VW union election
By John Logan

Last Friday the United Auto Workers (UAW) filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) protesting the “firestorm of interference” with the landmark union election at Volkswagen in Chattanooga, Tenn. After being subjected to several weeks of intensive anti-union campaigning, which included brazen threats by powerful Republican politicians, the employees voted by a narrow margin against unionization.

So-Called "Right to Work": Why it's Wrong for Working People
The effort to pass a right to shirk law is currently under way in Ohio. The same people who wanted to take away our collective bargaing rights with Senate Bill 5 are behind it. 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?

Get the latest information and facts to share below. Also below are links to learn more about who's behind the funding for right to shirk laws.
