What a way to kick off our newly re-formed Region 6! On Saturday, more than 300 members from across all sectors and areas of the Region came together to learn from each other, collaboratively set priorities, & commit to action steps for building power in the coming years.

UAW members in Region 6! Join fellow members from across the region to discuss all we have accomplished this year, and to collectively make plans for organizing and building power in the coming years. For more info & to register, contact your Local Union.
