The United Autoworkers, in its first direct election, threw out the caucus that ran the union for decades and elected Shawn Fain President. Now Fain is riding a wave of member demands to end forced overtime and the divisive tier system. The contract with GM, Ford and Stelantis/Chrysler expires September 14. We’ll talk about it with Dontay Wilson, President of UAW Local 31 at the GM Fairfax plant and also hear from Shawn Fain, Bernie Sanders and workers. Our feature is Labor Song of the Month with Mark Galus. The song is UAW-CIO.
