Service + Solidarity Spotlight: UAW Member Shares Passion for Her Union and Her Work

Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we'll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.

“I am the last person who sees the vehicle before it leaves out our building—and I take pride in what I do,” said Michelle Thomas, a member of UAW Local 600. She spends her workdays inspecting all-electric Ford F-150 trucks before they leave her facility to make sure they are ready to be sold.

Thomas’ story was featured in a video at the UAW convention last week. She teared up when she spoke about her love for her union and the work she does for her fellow UAW members. “What I do…I do it from the heart,” Thomas explained. “Now I’m in a position where I can really help, and that the love that I have and the care that I have, I can give it to so many others.”
