IUBAC Stands in Solidarity with UAW Brothers and Sisters

[Washington, D.C.] September 19, 2019 – The International Brotherhood of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers (IUBAC) stands in strong support of our brothers and sisters of the United Auto Workers (UAW) as they courageously fight for fairness and dignity in the workplace.

This strike is about protecting the basic rights of working-class Americans to fair wages, affordable quality healthcare, fair share of profits and job security. 

General Motors is making record profits and paying their CEO more than $20 million in annual salary. Yet they had the audacity to terminate health coverage for more than 48,000 UAW members, jeopardizing the health and welfare of these workers and their families. That is an act of heartless cruelty.

IUBAC stands in solidarity with the UAW as they fight for what is right and fair. We pledge to support our UAW brothers and sisters until we win this fight together.


The International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers, headquartered in Washington, D.C., is the oldest continuous union in North America and represents roughly 75,000 skilled masonry-trowel trades craftworkers in the United States and Canada, including bricklayers, tile setters, cement masons, plasterers, stone masons, marble masons, restoration workers, PCC and finishers, and terrazzo and mosaic workers.
