More Than 1,000 UAW Members Heading to the Hill

February 28, 2012
Over 1,000 United Auto Workers members will be on the Hill tomorrow to discuss job creation, taxes, unemployment and union issues with lawmakers and their staffs.

After hearing a fiery speech from President Obama today, the UAW will be meeting with both Democrats and Republicans from states where the union has a large number of members, including Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Texas, California, Missouri, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia and Oklahoma.

UAW members will voice their support for Obama's American Jobs Act, higher taxes on the wealthy and allowing the Bush tax cuts for the rich to expire.

The UAW is throwing its weight behind Obama ahead of the 2012 election, in part for his decision to help rescue the auto industry - a policy some of his Republican rivals opposed. A recent message from union president Bob King tears into Republicans and says "the right wing's only concern is protecting the wealthy and corporations at the expense of the rest of us."
