"Cadillac workers" organized in September 1936 when Local 174 -- the home local of Walter Reuther -- was formed. The local was chartered as Local 22 in 1945. The 2,900 active members of the local still make the Cadillac at GM's Hamtramck (Mich.) assembly plant. Members of Local 22 also include 460 workers at the GM powertrain facility in Livonia, Mich., nurses at three GM facilities, as well as workers at Vitec -- a manufacturer of gas tanks for various cars. Local 22's retiree chapter is 6,000 strong.
