4 When Speech Incites Hate: Two UAW Members Reflect on 2016 Election Donald Trump is a salesman and in 2016 he’s selling hate. He’s branded Mexicans rapists and wants all Muslim-Americans to be registered in a database. When he attacks groups, it’s easy to forget he’s attacking real people, real UAW members. Here are two UAW brothers talking about what it’s like to live in the world Trump is creating: I’m Mike Huerta. I’m to Dimondale. A few of us went — it was peaceful 45 years old and work on our end, just signs and showing our presence so he didn’t go unchallenged.

He chuckled at the abuse we were getting and I asked family. At one point, my mother, who is from him, “What kind of example are you setting for your Mexico, had to raise son?” I’m glad I said something, because it led to a Mike Huerta conversation which is the only antidote to this hate: seven children on her own.

6 Flamingo Casino Cashiers Look Forward to Making Positive Changes Latest Additions to Our Ranks Ready to Negotiate in Las Vegas Susan Reed, a cage cashier at the Flamingo casino in Las Vegas, knows that there’s no substitute for sitting down as equals with management to discuss problems and opportunities on the job. No amount of employee input, joint worker/ management committees or any other type of arrangement is equal to having the right to sit down with management and negotiate workplace changes through the collective bargaining process. That’s because in collective bargaining, both sides get to have their say and make demands. Without a union, the process favors management. In the end, it’s their way or the highway. Reed and 25 other Local 3555 members held a picnic that raised Flamingo cage cashiers who handle huge sums of $1,400 for Opportunity Village, a local charity in money generated from slots and table games voted Las Vegas that helps special needs children. overwhelmingly in a National Labor Relations Board- supervised vote to join the UAW over the summer.

20 A Letter to UAW Retirees From the President September, 2016 UAW retirees’ hard work and commitment have paved the way for the benefits that many working Americans currently enjoy. You and your fellow retirees have always understood the need to continue the fight to keep organized labor as the leading voice for all working and retired families. We appreciate how you have never shied away from standing up and supporting our beliefs. The UAW continues to lobby and fight through the court system to protect healthcare, Social Security, and Medicare. We thank you for your show of solidarity and pride by participating in events such as Labor Day parades, rallies and picket lines. You amplify our voice through social media, writing our legislators, phone banking and distributing leaflets at community functions. You play an important role when you communicate with our members, active and retired, and the community about the importance of buying Union and American made products and supporting the issues affecting working families and the labor movement. The UAW Retired Workers Department and its programs are funded by voluntary dues from UAW retirees like you. The implementation of dues began at the 1966 Constitutional Convention where retirees pledged that this program would be self-funded and that the UAW would not have to use active member dues. At that time, voluntary retiree dues were $1.00 per month. In 1986 retirees went to the Convention and asked that the dues be increased to $2.00 to ensure the continuation and growth of retiree programs. At the 36th Constitutional Convention, held in June 2014, retirees once again asked for the voluntary dues to be increased to $3.00. For your convenience, enclosed is a check-off card for you to fill-out, which will increase your contribution to $3.00 or more, per month. We’d like to thank those that have already increased their dues. The Retired Workers Department has many avenues for retirees to be involved with their Union and community. To find out more about these opportunities, please visit www.UAW.org/ retirees. We encourage you to become more active in your union by attending retiree meetings, helping out at your Local Union and volunteering in your community. We need you to spread the word about how your membership in the UAW has positively impacted your life. Lastly, we need your help to get out the vote in an important election this November!
