The UAW concluded its Special Bargaining Convention today, with members taking up issues of work schedules, the contractual right to honor other unions’ picket lines, and more.

UAW Vice President Chuck Browning gave rousing remarks about the unity of the newly-elected International Executive Board. “There is only one agenda on this board,” Browning said.  “It is the membership’s agenda.”

The second day of the Special Bargaining Convention was a busy one for those in attendance.

Wages, profit-sharing, healthcare, work schedules, health and safety, organizing, higher education, and support for veterans were among the issues discussed and debated by delegates on the Convention floor, as they continued to fine-tune their vision for the union’s bargaining strategy moving forward.

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer addressed the delegates, hailing the UAW for its support of the state’s recent repeal of so-called “right to work.”

The first-ever directly-elected International Executive Board was introduced as they took their places on the stage for Convention proceedings.
