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.

Although this is not a UAW sanctioned event, the Tulsa Women's March is an event that our Union Sister's and Brother's may want to participate in. This is an event all about women's viewpoints about our world and political climate. There will lots of things going on and the weather looks good for Saturday the 20th with a projected low of 50 and a projected high of 64. Find more details on the link below to participate in this event. January 20th, 2018 Event starts at 1pm but there will be activities beforehand and after the march as well.

Today we remember Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., an icon of the civil rights movement and a champion for the rights of workers. Locals and members across the country will be participating in a day of service to honor his legacy and serve their communities.

Union members across the country wear red shirts on Wednesday to show solidarity and to make their voices heard by management in a small way. The practice was started by the Communication Workers of America who wear red on Thursdays in order to honor Gerry Hogan, a member who was killed while on the picket line. The practice has taken on even more significance with recent attacks on workers' rights by legislatures across the country.
