Statement from UAW Local 291 regarding contract agreement and ratification with AxleTech International
The UAW and its Local 291 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, reached an agreement with AxleTech International. The parties failed to reach an agreement by the Jan. 29 contract expiration and UAW members have been on strike.
Local 291 members ratified the contract by an 88 percent vote ending their weeklong strike.
“We’d like to thank the many UAW members, members of the labor family, community friends and UAW retirees and family members for their support of AxleTech workers during the strike,” said Ron McInroy, director of UAW Region 4. “Support for UAW Local 291 members from the community helped achieve a fair contract for AxleTech workers and their families.”
UAW members have returned to work at AxleTech.

Statement from UAW Local 291 regarding a called strike against AxleTech International, Inc.
At 6 a.m., Feb. 6, 2017, UAW and its Local 291 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, called a strike against AxleTech International. The parties failed to reach an agreement by the Jan. 29 contract expiration deadline. The union has and will continue to bargain in good faith in attempts to reach a fair and equitable agreement for its members.
February is Black History Month, and we’re taking a look back on the contributions of African-American leaders within the UAW like Ruben Burks.
Ruben Burks’ long history of unionism and advocacy for social justice started in 1955 when he began working as an assembler at the former General Motors Fisher Body Plant 2 in Flint where he joined UAW Local 598...Read more >>>
Statement from UAW Vice President Norwood Jewell on FCA US Profit-Sharing Announcement
“Today FCA US announced that UAW members will get an average of $5,000 in profit-sharing payments. Based on the new contract formula that UAW members bargained in 2015 negotiations, some employees could be eligible for higher payments based on compensated hours.
UAW members at FCA US are proud of the quality Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and RAM products they produce, and through collectively bargained profit-sharing, the hard work and success of our members’ is rewarded.”

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.
