Union members across the country wear red shirts on Wednesday to show solidarity. The practice was started by the Communication Workers of America who wear red on Thursdays in order to honor Gerry Hogan, a member who was killed while on the picket line. The practice has taken on even more significance with recent attacks on workers’ rights by legislatures across the country. In keeping with the UAW International schedule, we encourage you to wear red on Wednesdays and to organize your fellow workers to do the same.
In Solidarity, Mark K. Crear, President, UAW Local 218
