Local Standing Committees

Understanding Standing Committees

Across our union, thousands of UAW members participate in one or more local union standing committees. They are rewarded by a feeling of accomplishment, working with their co-workers on meaningful projects, and “being the change” they want to see for working people. But we need many more activists at the table to help.

By working every day to develop and expand our standing and other committees, we can help meet the needs of our members and community, limited only by our creativity and commitment.

Veterans Committee

The Veterans Committee seeks members who are willing to represent the interest of all active and retired UAW Veterans and their families. This committee is dedicated to advocating for the political and social concerns of Veterans.

This is accomplished through leadership, guidance and education on matters of concern, such as:

The men and women who came to the aid of our nation when they were called upon, are a valuable resource to the entire labor movement. If you want to build and enhance the dignity that all Veterans have earned by serving their country, the Veterans Committee encourages you to participate.
