Leadership, Education and
Introducing the UAW Local 5960 local Leadership, Education and Development Program, also known as L.E.A.D.
L.E.A.D. is the acronym for:
Effective communication and relationship building skills are key in today’s workplace; informing co-workers on current events, upcoming activities or essential information regarding their own interests. Good communication skills go beyond text messaging, use of social media or more traditional media such as newsletters or magazines.
Studies have proven the most effective form of communication is face-to-face conversation. It is also our challenge to develop a process that not only provides information, but also solicits the opinions of co-workers and encourages others to be personally engaged.
If you are interested in being part of this process please contact Local 5960 Lead Coordinator: Bennie Lash at Bennie.Lash@gm.com
Diary of a Sit-Downer
While it is important to focus on our present and future, remembering our past and the sacrifices that were made by our UAW ancestors is equally important.
On December 30, 1936, the great Flint Sit-Down Strike began. On the occasion of the strike’s 80th anniversary, the UAW GM Talks Facebook page will be paying homage to the strike’s brave men and women by taking a rare look inside the 44-day strike through the journal entries of Francis O’Rourke, a strike participant at Flint’s Fisher Body Plant 2.
Every day from December 30, 2016 through February 11, 2017, the UAW GM Talks Facebook Page will feature an entry from Brother O’Rourke’s journal which captured the sit-down strike in stories and photos. The page is at https://www.facebook.com/uawgmtalks/
