UAW Chaplaincy Program Champions Compassion and Caring

May 17, 2015

One of the lesser-known programs of the UAW draws its inspiration from the very core of what founded our union—compassion and caring. The UAW Chaplaincy program started in the mid-eighties as a pilot project at UAW Local 599 in Flint, Mich. At the time, many UAW members—particularly those in the auto industry—were experiencing extreme pressures as domestic car sales plummeted and the lingering effects of the oil crisis led to huge waves of layoffs. UAW leaders recognized that a program was needed to help members adjust through the difficult times and avoid personal crisis.
