Aside from the one million dollars that our members donated in 2017 alone, they work in their communities giving back every day.
Sarah works with animals at Pawtectors. She not only works full time at the GM Lordstown plant building cars, she gets up early and helps people every day with their pets. Her desire to help animals and their owners is done out of love for the animals and is also a service to the community she lives in. There are many days that she works late into the evening before going home to only do it all over again the next day. She is not the only one, there are many, many, UAW 1112 members that I have met and know that volunteer to help coach youth athletic programs, volunteer at their churches, work with the Scouts, and support their communities in many different ways.
It’s important to understand that because GM provides a livable wage and good health care, the workforce is able to volunteer in the communities in which they live. If we can “Drive it Home” and secure future product at the GM Lordstown plant, our communities will continue to have caring people who can and do give back.
