Statement of UAW President Dennis Williams on the 2015 UAW FCA US tentative agreement ratification vote

DETROIT – The International Union, UAW announced today that UAW members at FCA US have voted down the tentative agreement by 65 percent.

The following statement is from UAW President Dennis Williams:

“As I said at the press conference: “What I love about our organization most of all is that no matter what we do, what action we take, the ultimate decision and the power of the union is our members and they make the final decision.”

That is the design of our constitution and who we are.

We will gather the issues together; notify FCA that further discussions are needed.

We don’t consider this a setback; we consider the membership vote a part of the process we respect.

We will be meeting with the UAW-FCA National bargaining committee and council to discuss the issues.”

2015 Ford Mustang Rendered, Detailed

 Mustang is Ford’s oldest continuously produced nameplate (Ford might cite its F-series, but that didn’t bear the F-150 badge until a decade after the Mustang arrived).

In its lifetime, Mustang has been many different cars: a reskinned Falcon, something closer to the Torino, a hideous and malformed mutant Pinto, and a Fox, the platform it shared with a variety of Fords, Mercurys, and even a couple of Lincolns across three decades.

In its current form, though, Mustang has become something it flirted with from inception: great. We named the GT and Boss 302 to our 2012 10 Best pantheon, and called the Boss “the best Mustang ever.”

For 2015, Ford’s ungulate will undergo its most revolutionary redesign yet. We hear it’ll arrive Thursday, April 17, 2014, or 50 years to the day it originally went on sale. This should make for one helluva birthday.


Retirement has not slowed him down a bit.

 Brother Charlie Alliss and three other volunteers from his church recently spent a week working with the Henryville tornado victims. The storms destroyed a fifty mile path through southern Indiana in March. Rebuilding the community is taking a monumental effort from the local residents and they’re thankful for any help they receive.
