DETROIT – The UAW responded today to the reaction of Mercedes-Benz U.S. International (MBUSI) management to being found guilty of violations of U.S. federal labor law.
 
UAW Secretary-Treasurer Gary Casteel said, “It is clear that Daimler has acted with hostility and in direct contempt of its neutrality policy in its dealing with pro-union workers at its Alabama plant in Tuscaloosa.  It’s deplorable that Mercedes was found in violation of U.S. law and then publicly claimed it as a victory and an example of its neutral pledge.”

Letter to Members - January 31, 2014

Members of Local 848,

It is disheartening to report that the NLRB did not rule in our favor with UAW’s charges against the company. We are currently preparing for our arbitration which is scheduled at a later date. UAW members need to keep the faith and trust in what the UAW stands for! We may have lost a battle but we have not lost the war.

In Solidarity,
Your Negotiating Committee
