2018-01-28 Companion Page Regarding UAW Membership Percentages

Companion Page

Workin 4 A Livin

Approximate Membership Percentages

As you can now see, the percentages have changed withing the UAW, and those new percentages demand a re-balancing of the Vice President assignments. Certainly at 9% of the total active membership FCA [or for that matter GM nor FORD] no longer have the membership percentages to warrant a full Vice president position as in the past.

As you can see… A UAW Detroit 3 industrial division, an IPS industrial division, and a TOPS division as UAW departments are more reflective of the total active membership percentages.

TEAM Workin 4 A Livin remains stead-fast in our commitment to ALL of the members, and representation based upon their actual numbers as a percentage of the total active membership.

Also… Identifiable members of the UAW actually on social media only represent about 3 % of the total 1 million plus membership – there may be more – however they have not identified themselves with their workplace or union, so it remains very expensive to campaign for international positions… Whether by direct secret ballot vote, or by secret delegate vote and sent to a convention. Saying that we can effectively campaign on social media to 3% of the total membership is not at all realistic at this time.

TEAM Workin 4 A Livin remains vigilantly committed to protect our UAW Members from the reported corrupt activities.

This is the leadership that you can expect to be getting from “Workin 4 A Livin” Union leadership that subscribes to a LABOR ETHOS – and NOT a COMPANY ETHOS.

Feds Say- FCA Paid UAW To Sway Negotiations

Feds Say FCA Paid UAW To Sway Negotiations

FCA officials paid to sway UAW negotiations, feds say

Detroit — Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV officials paid more than $1.5 million to United Auto Workers officers and employees to sway union contract negotiations, federal prosecutors said, part of a $4.5 million corruption scandal involving Detroit’s No. 3 automaker.

The accusations made Monday in a plea agreement with former FCA labor negotiator Alphons Iacobelli say for the first time in the investigation that executives’ actions were intended to corrupt UAW contract negotiations to favor Fiat Chrysler.

The plea deal suggests the corruption was more widespread than previously disclosed. It lasted for years as Fiat Chrysler officials lavished UAW labor leaders with cash payments and luxury items, including airfare, jewelry and secret $50,000 payments.

MEA Endorses Whitmer For Governor of Michigan

MEA Endorses Whitmer For Governor

Michigan Education Association

Endorses Gretchen Whitmer

For Governor of Michigan

CENTERLINE 01-15-2018: On a snowy wintry day at Wolfe Middle School in Centerline, Michigan at precisely 1 pm in front of an auditorium packed full of enthusiastic teachers and invited guests Paula Herbart the President of the Michigan Education Association energetically endorsed former Michigan House Representative, Leader of the Michigan Senate and Ingham County Prosecutor Gretchen Whitmer for the esteemed position of Michigan Governor.

The announcement was met with a rousing response and standing ovation by everyone in the audience.

As she was surrounded by MEA Leadership, senior staff, rank and file teachers and her two children Gretchen Whitmer began to mesmerize the audience with her eloquently delivered message to them. She spoke of her long family heritage of teaching professionals, and that she and now her own children attend public school. She spoke of the recent victory by the MEA to recover the 3% monies taken unconstitutionally from the teachers, and continued to point out and tout the value of a high quality public school system – stating “Our economy demands it!” She made a commitment to work hard to deliver a quality education for every Michigan child regardless of race, creed, geographic location, social or economic status.

Governor Candidate Gretchen Whitmer then began to address the attacks, injustices and inequities being perpetrated upon the  public school systems of not only Michigan, but on the entire United States. She pointed to United States Secretary of Education – Betsy DeVos, a woman with no known education background, as one of the principle persons leading that charge.

She closed with a sincere and genuine commitment to each and every teaching professional to make their job better and to re-appropriate the monies needed to properly run a school system, to include monies for paper, pencils and other supplies that should never be required to be paid out of a teachers personal monies.

We most assuredly wish the MEA and Governor candidate Gretchen Whitmer the very best in this election year!

Please write in to workin4alivin@workin4alivin.com and tell us your thoughts about whether our own union the UAW should endorse candidate Gretchen Whitmer for Governor of Michigan.

Your full comments are welcomed, though a simple “GW – Yes” or “GW – No” would also do.

Thank you for reading this and listen in to this Sunday’s show – January 21, 2018 for more details.

2018-01-15 Tribute To Dr Martin Luther King

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Tribute

TEAM Workin 4 A Livin

Tribute To Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

On this day of January 15, 2018, we pay homage to one of the most influential people in American history. A great man and an Activist, who’s works transcend modern day times. MARTIN Luther King Jr., who’s agenda was not just to make a better life for himself and his family, But included All of us. He was a brave man who sacrificed his own life, marching and fighting against civil and social inequalities that oppressed many people from various walks of life. His mission continues as we STAND IN SOLIDARITY against Racial and Human inequalities daily.

Dr. King’s legacy has set a path for ALL people in this country to succeed. His mission was not to conform to the social norms of those struggling times but to fight for better times in the future. Today in 2018 we have made progress, but still a lot more to be done. Without the sacrifices of Dr. King and other selfless individuals who chose to stand with him, who knows what the world would be today.

In conclusion, like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I also have a dream. My dream is for all people in this country no matter their race, ethnicity, sexuality, and economic status to be given the same opportunities and not be discriminated against.

GM Robo Cars Coming 2019

Get ready, people. The Jetson’s Era is right around the corner.

Starting next year, General Motors will begin deploying a fleet of up to 2,500 self-driving cars that will have no steering wheel or pedals, making them the first true robo-taxis to hit the streets.

The vehicles, unveiled today, represent the fourth generation of GM’s autonomous vehicle (AV) technology since it acquired Cruise Automation, a Silicon Valley startup, in early 2016.

GM is escalating its high-stakes battle with Waymo, Google’s former self-driving car unit, to commercialize the world’s first fully self-driving cars. Google was the early mover back in 2009, igniting a tech race that represents the biggest change in personal transportation since horses were replaced with horseless carriages more than a century ago. Dozens of companies, including BMW, Volvo, Mercedes, Uber, Tesla, and Baidu, have joined the hunt but at the moment, it looks like a two-horse race between Waymo and GM.

TEAM Workin 4 A Livin remains vigilantly committed to protect people who are workin 4 a livin, and most especially our UAW Members from the coming autonomous robots intended to replace not only vehicle drivers, as indicated in this article, but us manufacturing workers ourselves.

To that end, Workin 4 A Livin has a Platform-Plank to immediately, upon election to leadership, commission a task force to assess what protections can be sought. This highly capable task force will be required to publicly publish monthly updates on their progress.

This is what you can expect to be getting from Union leadership with a LABOR ETHOS.
