Since its inception, since we got here as a nation, America has been about the right to allow its citizens to pick and choose our best and most qualified people for public office.

By Ray Curry Vote! I cannot say it any simpler or say it enough. Vote to restore government for the people, by the people; vote to preserve our threatened middle class; vote for America’s workers by voting for an America that works; vote up and down the ballot and vote union blue.

Detroit - “UAW members are grateful to law enforcement authorities for putting aside in this very divisive time any partisan differences and breaking up perhaps the most direct threat to our U.S. democracy since the murder of President Abraham Lincoln and conspiracy against the U.S. Government. And we are thankful for the health and safety of all those who were targeted in this incident.

Detroit -- Our thoughts and prayers are with the President, First Lady and White House staff for a quick recovery from COVID-19. UAW members know all too well the danger of this pandemic and we pray for the health and recovery of all who are infected, exposed or caring for family members.

The 2020 Presidential Election is just weeks away. Never has your vote been more important. Why? Because the progress unions have made over the last decades to build a strong middle class and enable working people to retire in dignity is systematically being whittled away. Let’s take a hard look at how the working men and women of the United States have fared in the last few years.

Tune in to the first 2020 presidential debate this Tuesday at 9 p.m.ET! Check your local TV listings to find out where to view it or stream the debate on C-SPAN's Youtube channel:

DETROIT - “By committing $71 million in investments at the Toledo Transmission Plant and Defiance Casting Plant, General Motors is demonstrating its commitment to the long history and quality craftsmanship of UAW members. These investments create job security for UAW GM members, their families and the Toledo and Defiance communities.”

What a sad day for our nation and for all those who stand up and speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. Ruth Bader Ginsburg blazed a trail for civil rights and women’s rights and the sanctity of our constitution in her 27 years as a Supreme Court Justice. No words can do real justice to her contributions to the highest court in the land and her contributions to our nation. To this courageous champion of women’s rights and worker’s rights and equality for all.
