Upcoming UAW “One-member-one-vote” referendum
We will discuss the upcoming referendum on whether the UAW will transition from a delegate system for union-wide elections to a “one-member-one-vote” system, in which each member votes on our national leadership directly. All members of our union will be able to participate in this referendum, likely over the Fall. Click here to read some resolutions passed by other UAW Academic Locals.
