76th UE National Convention

The 76th National Convention of the United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America (UE) will take place Sunday, August 25 through Thursday, August 29 in Pittsburgh, PA.

This year's convention theme is "The Union for Everyone!” which reflects the changes from UE’s beginnings over 83 years ago, when the membership came solely from the electrical, radio and the machine tool industries. Today our membership is very diverse including rail crew drivers, school and college/university employees, co-op workers, hospital employees, service contract workers to name but a few, in addition to the manufacturing workers who have been the backbone of UE for so many years. We have learned that no matter what sector you hail from, UE’s long and vibrant history of aggressive struggle lives on. UE has always been, and will continue to be, a force for worker democracy and solidarity for everyone.

On this page you can find information on hotel, transportation, the convention subsidy program, and two new documents for this year's convention: the UE Guide to Writing Convention Resolutions and UE's new Anti-Harassment Principles, Responsibilies and Procedures, which will be in force at this year's convention.
