You are about to see through the eyes of a regular production worker turned president. Up until the day I took office, I had never held a union position. I had attended less than a handful of membership meetings. I was not promoted because of who I knew or any previous involvement with union activities. I won my election because our members recognized that we needed change. We needed a fresh perspective from someone that had not been corrupted by past practice.
Prepare to see the UAW, the world’s most powerful union, as never before—from a position of leadership. One of the youngest presidents ever elected in the UAW is taking you behind the scenes. Imagine the perspective of an outsider promoted from the working class. Every chapter will be a key that unlocks an inner door of one of the most controversial organizations of our day.
