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.”
