Dana Brothers and Sisters:

We, the Dana Personnel Rank-and File Committee (DWRFC), are ill and exhausted of currently being held in the darkish by the UAW about the agreement that will identify the subsequent a long time of our lives. It has been two days considering that our contract expired and 24 hours since the UAW introduced a tentative agreement, but we have been explained to absolutely nothing.

Enable us be distinct: this indicates the contract is a overall sellout that will have to be turned down. If there ended up any gains for workers in the tentative agreement, the UAW would have informed us right absent. In point, they likely agreed on the contract a lengthy time ago. They have not been “negotiating” around the phrases, but conspiring versus us and preparing how to power by means of a rotten deal.

We thus connect with on Dana employees all over the place to join us in demanding the subsequent:

1. The quick launch of the entire settlement and all the aspect letters and memoranda of knowledge.
