This week, UAW members will gather in Washington D.C. for the 2018 National Community Action Program (CAP) Conference.

Over 1,100 UAW members will attend the four-day conference, which gives members a look at the union's legislative and political priorities for the coming year. This year's conference will focus on immigration, international trade, job creation, and tax reform.

American consumers can make a difference for working men and women when they buy products made right here in the United States, UAW President Dennis Williams told CAP delegates Sunday night.

The UAW’s BuildBuyUSA Program will launch a video contest as an innovative way to create fun and excitement to supporting goods manufactured here because “we have economic power as working men and women in this country,” Williams said.

The program will launch on March 7 with more details to be released soon.

“We believe things change by the power of the wallet,” said Williams.

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.
