Dear UAW Member,
As you may have heard, this morning the Supreme Court officially voted to overturn Roe v. Wade. This will have far-reaching public health, economic, and social consequences, especially for Black, Indigenous, migrant, disabled, working class, and trans people.
The time is now to clearly demonstrate that regardless of this decision, we will not accept any attack on reproductive rights and bodily autonomy. Our most powerful ability to respond comes from joining together and taking rapid, unified action. As part of the labor movement, we can and should play an active role in responding to today’s SCOTUS decision. This is how we won Roe v. Wade in the first place – huge movements of regular working people, including strikes, unionization efforts, collective actions, campaigns to fight sexism in the workplace, and more.
Since a draft of the decision was leaked earlier this month, UAW 4121 members have been joining with thousands of others in our communities to build coalition, solidarity, and collective power. This will take ongoing work beyond today, so please check out our Reproductive Justice webpage and email firstname.lastname@example.org or join the #reproductive-rights Slack channel for more info and to get involved.
