UAW Local 31 proudly represents over 7000 active and retired workers, producing the award-winning Chevrolet Malibu and Cadillac XT4 at the General Motors Kansas City Fairfax Assembly Plant. We at Local 31 are dedicated to the UAW’s guiding principles that promote union activism for the purpose of rebuilding the American class by raising living standards for all American workers.

Local 31 recently celebrated it's 80th anniverary. It became a chartered Local of the UAW on March 4, 1942. 

Take Action

The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) awarded the $6 billion contract for the next generation of postal vehicles to Oshkosh Defense, a company with a reputation for tough military trucks built with union labor with just a small number of electric vehicles on order.

But instead of using this opportunity to expand quality jobs under a decades-old union contract, the company plans to refurbish a vacant warehouse in another state and build these vehicles without a commitment to union wages or representation.

Let’s Build Back Better and put letter carriers in union-made vehicles that are good for the planet. Add your name and sign the petition if you agree.

Thousands of union members wear red shirts on Wednesdays as a sign of solidarity.
When a sea of red shirts greet management, it’s a way to let them know that the workers stand together.

There’s a direct relationship between the ballot box and the bread box, and what the union fights for and wins at the bargaining table can be taken away in the legislative halls.
