DETROIT, MICH. – The UAW today endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, citing her support for UAW members, her lifelong commitment to the job security of American families, and her ability to unify and win in November.
“Hillary Clinton understands our issues on trade, understands the complexities of multinational economies and supports American workers, their families and communities,” said UAW President Dennis Williams.
Now is a time for unity, a time to focus on what lies ahead in November. Bernie Sanders has brought to this campaign a dialogue that has been needed for far too long. He has been, and remains, a great friend of the UAW, and of working men and women in this country. But, the fact is, Hillary Clinton has shown under pressure her ability to lead and get elected in November.

"I am honored to have received the endorsement of the United Auto Workers and their over one million active and retired members.Every day, the UAW shows us that we can and we will 'Make it in America.'
The U.S. auto industry has come roaring back from the great recession and just posted its best year ever—because the U.S. auto industry has the world’s best, hardest-working, most innovative and most creative workforce.
We need to keep going—and we need a President who will always stand with working families. Today, about one in five cars built in North America come from Mexico—double the share in 2004. That’s why autoworkers need more than tough talk on trade. They need a President who knows how to compete and win for American workers. I have said for years that I want to see NAFTA renegotiated to give American workers a level playing field. And we need to take on new challenges, like weak auto 'rules of origin' standards that provide a backdoor for Chinese steel and other products into the U.S. We’re going to throw the book at China and stop them from cheating American workers.
As President, I will stand with the United Auto Workers in protecting workers’ fundamental right to organize and bargain collectively, including in their fight to organize the VW plant in Chattanooga. And we need to make sure that the jobs of the future, including in clean energy and clean transportation, are good union jobs that can’t be outsourced. If I am fortunate enough to be elected President, organized labor will always have a champion in the White House and a seat at the table—because when unions are strong, families are strong, and when families are strong, America is strong."

This November, America will elect a Commander-in-Chief, whom we’ll entrust with the duty of keeping us safe in an uncertain world. Fortunately, this year, fulfilling this solemn responsibility is not a difficult choice.
Donald Trump would be an unmitigated disaster. His foreign policy views – to the extent he has them – are often invented on the spot. He has a penchant for dismissing close allies like the United Kingdom when they criticize him, and praising leaders like Putin when they flatter him. Quite simply, he has shown no regard for the norms and necessities that so much of our modern diplomatic and security efforts depend upon.
Only one person running to lead our nation has the experience, the interest, and the demeanor to lead and protect our nation: Hillary Clinton.
