December 2019

First off, I would like to wish every-one Happy Holidays. 2019 has been a historic year for the nation and the UAW.  For our country we started the year by seeing a record number of women sworn into congress, but followed that up with the Mueller report, a trade war with China, and impeachment hearings.  The UAW had a historic strike against GM right along side, indictments, resig-nations, and prison sentences. It has certainly been a year that could make a person question their faith in our institutions.  
When I sat down to write this piece I considered ranting about the abuses of power by our leaders, both within our Union and within our country and the costs of greed, arrogance, and hubris. Or maybe a diatribe about the scabs who crossed the picket lines and still accept every-thing the Union secured for them. But, it felt like that would not be in keeping with the spirit of the season. Instead, let me just say that it has always been true that Nations, peo-ples, organizations, and individuals stray from the path. It follows that when this happens it falls to those who remain, who are left amid the rubble, to find their way back to the path.  So that is my hope for everyone this Holiday season and into the new year, to help our Union, our Country, and ourselves find the right paths for-ward and to help others do the same.
