Car shopping this summer? Buy a union-made vehicle!

UAW WorkerShopping for a new car, truck, van or SUV? Make sure you’re supporting American jobs by buying a union-made vehicle.

The UAW website has a comprehensive list of all the vehicles manufactured and produced by union workers. Ford Motor Company employs UAW workers, and with everything from the classic pick-up to the family-friendly four door, you’ll have your choice of union-made vehicles. Chrysler Group also supports the U.S. economy by employing UAW members at their plants across the country. General Motors makes vehicles of all shapes, sizes, and designs in the United States with a union workforce, from traditional passenger cars to the innovative Chevy Volt. And don’t forget Mitsubishi, which employs UAW members at their American manufacturing plant.

What about union-made tires? The United Steelworkers have compiled a list of companies where union members make the tires. You can purchase union-made tires from these companies: BFGoodrich, Bridgestone Tires, Dunlop Tires, Cooper Tires, Goodyear, and Yokohama Tire. Check the USW website for a description of which tires are made in the United States.

With so many options for union-made cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs, not to mention tires, you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect car for you or your family while supporting American jobs.

    I bought a Cavalier many years ago. I told my credit union auto shopper which car/color/extras I wanted. And then I told him I wanted it to be assembled by UAW at Lordstown plant. He had to search inventory all over west coast. Two weeks later I got my car. That was Oct. 1996. I’m still driving that car. My husband got me a custom license plate frame that reads : UAW BUILT-ATU DRIVEN. ATU- Amalgamated Transit Union #265. I drive bus for VTA (Valley Transportation Authority) Santa Clara County Transit. Union YES!

    Union members can save when they buy new and used cars with the Union Plus Auto Buying Service and receive up to $550 in rebates when they buy a *new* union-made vehicle through the program. Learn more at http://www.UnionPlus.org/AutoBuying.

    I have recently replaced the tires on my 2001 Dodge Ram and my 2005
    Dodge Caravan. I was distressed at how the tire places kept pushing forign brands and Supposedly American brands, not made in the USA.

    I finally was able to get Cooper tires by request at Town Fair Tires in Somersworth NH (truck) and National Tire and Battery At the Huntington (WV) mall (van). Not only were both of these dealers happy that I demanded American Made, the also made me a good deal.
    IT PAYS TO ASK and to tell a dealer that you wont buy forign.
