Over the past year, UAW members fought for and won the right to directly elect their national and regional officers. Against all odds, they elected a reform slate into positions of power, including the President. This unprecedented action was a response by workers who were fed up with a union bureaucracy that they concluded was serving the companies at their expense.

In Mexico, they have a name for this: “protection unions” which, behind the workers’ backs, negotiated self-serving “protection contracts.” In Mexico, like in the UAW, there’s been a decades-long rebellion against the sell-outs. Here’s the back story to a 1990 rebellion by Mexican Ford workers which ended in bloodshed and death. The UAW and AFL-CIO bureaucrats – in cahoots with the US government – were on the wrong side. How do we know we will be on the right side now?

Join us for an informative discussion with former UAW Local 879 (Ford Minneapolis-St Paul) President Rob McKenzie, who fought against the leadership to support the Mexican Ford workers.
