Our union is a democracy. From forming new bargaining units, to electing officers, UWUA is built and governed by collective action and member participation. Officers are elected and installed at each regular National Convention and serve terms of four years. By constitutional resolution, nominees must have been employed in the industries we represent.
UWUA leadership and staff work on your behalf every day bargaining the strongest contracts, advancing national and local policy priorities, holding employers and policy makers accountable, and working to improve workplace safety.
Regional Executive Board Members
Our executive board consists of the president, the executive vice president, the vice president, the secretary-treasurer, and 20 executive elected board members. Board members are charged with executing the instructions of the National Convention, and have the responsibility and power to direct the workings of the organization and to formulate policy affecting the good and welfare of the union.
