Labor Day Message from UAW International Vice President Cindy Estrada

Greetings,

Happy Labor Day to all UAW-GM active and retired members. I hope you enjoy this Labor Day weekend and take time to reflect on the reason we celebrate this holiday.

At Nissan, we recently saw once again how powerful forces can intimidate unorganized workers to keep them from winning their union and a seat at the table. And we know from years of experience that having union rights and a contract with GM doesn’t mean we don’t have to fight every day to hold management accountable and respect our demands.

When organized and unorganized workers join together – whatever their differences – we can take on the 1 percent. We still haven’t gotten there, but I know one-day workers in this country will realize the full power of our humanity and come together in solidarity to make lasting social and economic change for ourselves, our communities, and our country.

In solidarity,

Cindy
