ACT-UAW is staffed almost entirely by volunteers. The easiest way to become a volunteer and help is by joining a committee:
is the political action arm of our local.
We work to promote the interests of our membership through community action and involvement in the local, state, and national
scene. We support candidates with a pro-labor agenda as well as working to further legislation that benefits causes we support
such as unemployment insurance.

builds skills for a strong, unified membership. For
leadership within the Local we train Shop Stewards and membership for upcoming contract negotiations. For the general membership,
we provide workshops to apprise them of their rights, the history of organized labor, how it benefits them at work, and how
they can develop and expand their own skills at organizing.

works to keep members' engaged with our union.
We plan events such as the Part-Time Faculty Convocation and events showcasing the achievements of our membership and/or promoting
discussion of issues central to higher education and academic labor. We are recruiting.
About our other committees: The UAW Constitution establishes other standing committees,
including Constitution and Bylaws, and Civil Rights. We are also free to create committees focused on specific activities,
