2022 UAW V-CAP T-Shirt & Sweatshirts Drive

Brothers and Sisters:

As you are aware, the UAW has established Wednesdays as “Red Shirt” Day. This is a way for our members to show solidarity and support the working people of America. Attached is a flyer for the 2022 Region 4 V-CAP t-shirt. Your voluntary t-shirt purchase will go towards furthering UAW goals: strengthening our membership by connecting them to the political process, developing community leaders and elected officials who listen, respond, and represent the needs of our members and communities.

Our members and their families are facing many challenges, including the 2022 mid-term elections. Electing lawmakers who understand that a stable and thriving democracy must represent all Americans rather than the wealthy few is critical. Momentum is building among the American public in favor of labor unions. Gallop estimates as of 2020 that 65% of Americans approve of labor unions, a number unseen in decades. Collectively, your V-CAP tshirt purchase will aid in electing candidates who support working Americans and the strengthening of unions, protecting the best interest of our members and citizens. Wearing your shirt is a positive statement of workers standing together, in solidarity, for the health, wealth, and safety of all.

The below flyer for t-shirt sales will be arriving by email and post from your state legislative coordinators to your local union, in addition to order forms. We have the traditional “Red Shirt” option as well as a gray option this year. I look forward to a successful 2022 V-CAP Drive.
