UAW Local members from across the country served as delegates at the Democratic National Convention this past week, including four from the National Writers Union/UAW Local 1981.
Dozens of delegates were selected to represent a diverse group of UAW members from a variety of states, including Connecticut, Arizona, Oklahoma, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Texas, Missouri, Wisconsin, Iowa and Ohio.
Delegates spent the week in Philadelphia joining with fellow Democrats from across the nation to achieve several goals, including nominating the party’s candidates for both president and vice president. Delegates also heard addresses from national Democratic and other progressive leaders, finalized a far-reaching and comprehensive party platform, and worked to further unify the Democratic party.
The UAW endorsed Hillary Clinton for the nation’s highest office.
“Hillary Clinton understands our issues on trade, understands the complexities of multinational economies, and supports American workers, their families and communities,” said UAW President Dennis Williams.
The delegates from the National Writers Union were:
Chris Savage, UAW Local 1981, Dexter, MI
Cecil Bothwell, UAW Local 1981, Asheville, NC
Tom Prezelski, UAW Local 1981, Tucson, AZ
Deb Kozokowski, UAW Local 1981, Chicopee, MA
Thank you for representing your union and for participating in this important process!
