UAW members were excited today to learn that President Obama will be joining them next week in Washington when they gather for the union's National Community Action Program (CAP) Legislative Conference.
More than 1,600 members from across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico will discuss the union's legislative and political priorities for the coming year, meet with members of Congress to advocate on behalf of working families and prepare for the union's 2012 electoral campaign.
UAW members will be focusing on the union's jobs creation agenda that includes passing President Obama's American Jobs Act and demanding policies to strengthen our economy by:
"President Obama has been seriously focused on his jobs agenda since he took office, beginning with one of his first acts - saving the American auto industry," said UAW President Bob King. "The President made a bold and, at the time, politically unpopular choice. He stood with workers and the American auto industry, and the communities whose economies depend on the industry and saved more than one million American jobs. We are grateful for his support of American workers and we are excited to have him join us next week as we gather in Washington."
The President will address UAW members on Tuesday morning at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel at 2660 Woodley Road, N.W. UAW members will spend Feb. 29 making legislative visits to discuss the union's fight for job creation with members of Congress.
