Dingell Stands with UAW Workers Looking for a Fair Shake

Washington, October 2, 2019

ROMULUS, MI – As the UAW Strikes continue, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-MI) this week continued to visit picket lines and stand with UAW workers at the GM plant in Romulus. Dingell will visit different shifts all week at all the plants in her district. 

Photos of Dingell’s visit are available here.

“All the UAW workers want is a fair shake,” said Dingell. “The spirit on the picket lines are strong, but many are still worried about their healthcare, job security, and if they will be able to put food on the table. Organized labor invented the five-day work week. They found new ways to increase productivity and scale up and deliver great American made products. This strike is for the working men and women who must be respected as full partners with business in this country.”

Since the start of the UAW strike, Congresswoman Dingell has visited the picket lines often and at different hours to show support and listen to the concerns of UAW workers. Last week, Dingell joined UAW workers on strike at the GM plants in Belleville, Ypsilanti, and Romulus.
