UAW Strike Sees Progress but Still Continues
Over the next few days some 46,000 UAW members at General Motors will vote whether to ratify or reject a 2019 tentative contract agreement.
The UAW will remain on strike, which is entering week six, while its members study the tentative agreement throughout the week and vote. If the contract is ratified, the strike is over and workers could return to work the next day. But that's to be determined as is what happens if the deal is rejected.
The Jackson County Democratic Committee along with many of the Democratic elected officials in our county have walked on the line with these workers and donated resources to employees. Defending worker's rights is a central part of our party philosophy and we'll keep standing by them until their demands are met.

Don't Forget About Special Elections!
We have two special elections in Kansas City on November 5, House Districts 22 and 36. Our candidates, Yolanda Young and Mark Sharp, are working hard to connect with voters and make sure they know Democrats are doing what they can to curb violence, fix roads, improve public schools and raise wages across the state of Missouri. If you want to help either of their campaigns, let us know!
