Going Into Classrooms With Our Story
By Ann Skelton

In the 65 years of our existence, The UAW has been a key constituency for every piece of positive social legislation since the great Depression. The history of the United States in the twentieth century is a monument of working men and women combining to redress economic, political and societal ills while bringing democracy to its full bloom in our plants and offices, in our communities, in our states and in our nation, and by example the world.
