While we have made great strides in organizing factories and plants across the nation, we are not done yet! There are still a great manynumber of auto workers who would benefit from representation by the UAW. If you are interested in learning more about the UAW, what we do, and what we can do for your plant, please contact your nearest UAW organized local. All supporters are welcome! We need women, men, children, of all shapes and sizes to combat the GM empire. The UAW would not be here without your help and passion for victory!

Sit down, just keep your seat
Sit down and rest your feet
Sit down, you got ’em beat
Sit down, sit down!
(Repeat after each verse)
When they tie the hands of the union man – sit down, sit down
When they give ’em a pact they’ll take them back – sit down, sit down
When they tie a can to the union man – sit down, sit down
When they give them the pact that will take them back – sit down, sit down
When they smile and say, “No raise in pay!” – sit down, sit down
When you want the boss to come across – sit down, sit down
When your feet are numb just twiddle your thumb – sit down, sit down
When you want ’em to know they’d better go slow – sit down, sit down
When the boss won’t talk go and take a walk – sit down, sit down
When the boss see that he’ll want a little chat – sit down, sit down
–composed by our very own UAW attorney, Maurice Sugar–
For the union makes us strong
When the union’s inspiration
through the workers’ blood shall run,
There can be no power greater
anywhere beneath the sun.
Yet what force on earth is weaker
than the feeble strength of one?
But the union makes us strong.
They have taken untold millions
that they never toiled to earn,
But without our brain and muscle
not a single wheel can turn.
We can break their haughty power;
gain our freedom when we learn
That the Union makes us strong.
In our hands is placed a power
greater than their hoarded gold;
Greater than the might of armies,
magnified a thousand-fold.
We can bring to birth a new world
from the ashes of the old
For the Union makes us strong.
