UAW Endorses Barack Obama

Yesterday, the 1 million member UAW endorsed Barack Obama for president. UAW President Ron Gettelfinger said:

From the streets of Chicago to the state Legislature in Springfield, Ill., to the halls of the U.S. Senate, Barack Obama has been a voice for dignity and justice for working people. He has a strong program for a safe and secure America, which will protect our citizens and help our country prosper in a new century.

On every issue that counts, we can count on Barack Obama to stand with our members, our families and our communities.

Sen. Obama supports free choice in the workplace; he will fight to deliver quality, affordable health care to every American; and he understands the need to change our trade policies so that U.S. workers and U.S. companies can compete fairly in the global economy.
