      Congratulations to all the winners of the Region 1C Bowling Tournment. It was an amazing day with a lot of excitment and some surprizes. All the winners, their scores and their winnings are on the flyer here.

      Region 1C will be hosting an Election Committee Training Class on Thursday, February 13, from 9 am to 4 pm. The class will be at the Flint Region 1C office, and materials will be provided. If you are interested, contact your local union leadership. All the information can be found here in this letter.

      A poverty workforce hurts everyone. These are our families, our neighbors, our friends, our communities-this is us we are talking about! We have to take care of each other. Big business and greedy corporations aren't looking out for us.

      No one should have to live in poverty who works full time, and unions support fair treatment of all workers. 

      If we sit by and wait for corporations to "give" more to the workers or the economy to "stabilize," with the exception of a few progressive companies, we are going to find ourselves in a society without a middle class. We will be left with only the ruling class and the working poor.

      The UAW supports raising minimum wage. Click here for our six part informational series. Feel free to print and share.

      A critical civil rights issue and one of the UAW’s top priorities in 2013 is a workable immigration system that will allow 11 million aspiring Americans to become citizens. This is why UAW and allies have been working to ensure we move forward this year and create a road map to citizenship. Comprehensive immigration reform is a win for everyone.

      Our current system hurts citizens: our country’s immigration system is broken and without a pathway to citizenship, millions of workers are forced into a shadow economy and exploited by unscrupulous employers.

      That drives down wages and working conditions for all workers, and puts employers who want to do the right thing at a competitive disadvantage.

      Who wins when undocumented immigrants live in fear? Only employers who take advantage of them win. The rest of us lose.

      Our current system exploits undocumented immigrants: Under the current system, employers are able to hire undocumented immigrants because they can pay them less, force them to work in hazardous conditions, steal their wages and threaten them with deportation if they complain.

      UAW strongly supports S. 744: The heart of the Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act (S.744), which passed through the Senate Judiciary Committee with a bipartisan 13-5 vote, is our movement’s core demand: the creation of a reliable, inclusive road map to citizenship for the 11 million aspiring Americans. The committee vote represents a big step toward ending family separation and towards strengthening worker protections.

      Here are four flyers with common questions and answers about immigration reform.

      The Fred Myers Scholarship Program has a website! All the information about the Scholarship and the Bowling Tournament can be found here.

      The Region 1C Bowling Tournament will be in Jackson this year at Airport Lanes. The cost is the same as last year, $18 per bowler, per event. The team event is Sunday, January 12 at 11 a.m. and the singles and doubles events are Saturday, January 11 at 1 p.m. All the details, rules and applications have been sent to previous captains and local union leadership. If you are interested in putting a team together, contact one of them or come by the Flint Regional office. Questions may be directed to Shane or Dovey at 810-767-0910. An informational flyer is here.

      Region 1C will be sending buses of members to Washington DC for the King Commemorative March. It will be Saturday, August 23. More information can be found in this flyer, and we will post more news as we receive it. Watch here and the Region 1C facebook page to see the updates.
