It's the perfect time for UAW members to fire up the grill, then kick back with a cold one and enjoy a little quality summer time with fellow workers, friends and family. Now, there's an easy way to make sure that your supplies are union-made!

Members of UAW Local 668 are celebrating a century of manufacturing at Saginaw Metal Castings Operations in Saginaw, Michigan. Workers at the company, which supplies parts for General Motors vehicles, have processed 45 million tons of iron and 2 billion pounds of aluminum over the past hundred years.

The first Sunday in August is National Sisters Day, and your opportunity to show your appreciation for that unique bond only sisters can understand. What better way to celebrate than joining with your fellow union sisters in the Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW)?

On March 24, 1974, over 3,000 determined labor union women and supportive feminists from across the United States convened in Chicago to create the Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW). The UAW was a founding supporter of CLUW, which elected then-UAW Vice President Olga Madar as its first president.

National Friendship day encourages people from across the globe to connect with friends. This is the day to make a new friend or connect with an old friend.
