UAW Local 848

Monthly membership meetings are the core of democracy in our union. The February 3rd Sunday meeting started the process for electing our officers.

The Texas AFL-CIO chose candidates at their political convention in Austin January 28-29. They also passed resolutions favoring labor, including one asking for a cease fire in the Middle East.

The Stand Up Strike of 2023 has unprecedented support!

Union meetings democratically determine things that make a great deal of difference in our lives. 

UAW Local 848 members have three monthly meetings that they can attend:

Take Action

The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) awarded the $6 billion contract for the next generation of postal vehicles to Oshkosh Defense, a company with a reputation for tough military trucks built with union labor with just a small number of electric vehicles on order.

But instead of using this opportunity to expand quality jobs under a decades-old union contract, the company plans to refurbish a vacant warehouse in another state and build these vehicles without a commitment to union wages or representation.

Let’s Build Back Better and put letter carriers in union-made vehicles that are good for the planet. Add your name and sign the petition if you agree.
