Biographical Note

Paul J. Goldener was president of the United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America, Local 645, Van Nuys, California. The United Automobiles, Aerospace & Agricultural Implement Workers of America (UAW) was founded in 1936 by Walter P. Reuther as the collective bargaining representative for many of America’s industrial workers. One of the most dynamic and progressive unions in the world, the UAW membership has grown from 231,894 to over 1.7 million today. Progressing from a handful of local unions in the mid-1930s, the UAW now boasts 1,650 locals in the United States and Canada, representing employees in more than 3,800 plants. The union plays an important role in the lives of five million people in the UAW families.

The secret of UAW's success lies in its long-standing, pioneering efforts to improve the wages, security, working conditions and other benefits of the workers it represents on a contract-by-contract basis. Through collective bargaining, the UAW has won many benefits for its members, including paid holidays, equal pay for equal work, severance pay, company-paid life insurance, unemployment benefits, comprehensive health and safety provisions, relief time on the job, earlier retirement and continuing improvements in local plant working conditions.

In both the work place and in society as a whole, the UAW is guided by certain principles:  organization for the common good; preservation of dignity in the work place; a fair share of the fruits of increasing productivity; job and income security; community-citizenship responsibility; and brotherhood and solidarity... in the union, in the community, in the nation and in the world.

The function of the UAW goes beyond collective bargaining. It conducts schools and camps for active members and drop-in centers for retired members, it holds conferences with teachers and ministers, and it fights for justice in legislative halls, the United Nations, communities or on the picket lines. As former president of the UAW Leonard Woodcock said, "We in the UAW can say truthfully that wherever people seek justice we are with them."

The UAW is administered by the International Executive Board whose officials are elected by delegates to a constitutional convention held every two years. Delegates from a geographic region, elected by secret ballot, choose a regional director who takes charge of UAW affairs in that region. The regional directors and the International officers constitute the International Executive Board of the UAW.

The membership meeting is the top authority in the local union and must be held once each month. All officers of the local union are elected by the membership at secret ballot elections every three years. The program and policies of the local union are the result of rank-and-file action taken after open debate in membership meetings. The members elect, by secret ballot, their representatives to the UAW Constitutional Convention.

The UAW is proud of its past achievements and dedicated to creating a better tomorrow -- a greater measure of social justice, a higher degree of economic security and higher standards of living for its members and their families and communities.
