As the German autoworkers’ union IG Metall continued to negotiate with German carmakers, 20,000 workers at Volkswagen’s main plant in Wolfsburg walked away from production lines for two hours to express their determination for a fair collective bargaining agreement.

According to Gallup Polls done on December 4th, 2017, 25 percent of the American populace are registered as Republicans, 27 percent as Democrats, 2 percent as other parties (such as Liberetarian, etc.) and a whopping 46 percent are registered as Independent. That statistic alone tells you that Americans aren't being properly represented by our government. Ten years ago the same Gallup Poll was done on December 6th, 2007 with 30 percent Republican, 32 percent Democrat and 36 percent being Independent. Politicians are losing the support of the American people.

What have we learned from our first year under Republican control of all branches of government? Elections matter. The mid-term election is critically important. And when we vote, we must not be taken in by hollow promises. We must not be distracted or deterred from our course by the peculiar distractions of this government. We must insist on something better from Washington. We do not want more politicians who forget about working families after Election Day.

Each year, Union Plus awards scholarships to students from union families across the country. Scholarships are awarded based on academic merit, social awareness, financial need and appreciation of labor. Scholarships are awarded in amounts of $500 to $4,000, and students may reapply each year.

Last year, UAW members and their children were awarded thousands of dollars to help them continue their education through the Union Plus Scholarship program.
