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.

Detroit - UAW International President Rory L. Gamble has received lifetime achievement awards from the Detroit Chapter NAACP and the Western Wayne County NAACP this month honoring his and UAW’s commitment to the fight for social justice.

Gamble, the UAW’s first African American International President, said he was humbled and honored by the award. “This confirms that the work we do at the UAW in fighting for social justice and the rights and dignity of all Americans is recognized by our community.”

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. We took a while to get here. We started out with some states allowing only white male adult property owners to vote, with non-whites and women and non-property owners on the outside looking in.

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.
