Kokomo, Indiana S.O.S.
Kokomo Soldiers of Solidarity Charter
Kokomo Soldiers of Solidarity (Formerly The Delphi Workers' Committee) consists of rank-n-file members, elected officials and appointed members of Local 292, Local 685 and Local 1166 of the United Auto Workers Union. The committee exists solely to build progressive change in our local unions.
The working class and the employing class have nothing in common. There can be no peace so long as hunger and want are found among millions of the working people and the few, who make up the employing class, have all the good things of life.
We work as an independent collective of concerned members from the inside our local unions. Our objective is to protect and educate our co-workers on the shop floor. We strive to protect, empower and educate the entire membership of our locals. We believe that the empowering of the rank-n-file membership is the only solution to build a stronger union. From the bottom up we must reform the entire UAW.
Kokomo Soldiers of Solidarity works to notify the membership of our locals when elected or appointed local and international union officials are unethical or acting in a manner contrary to the interests of the membership.
Kokomo Soldiers of Solidarity works to notify the membership of our locals of all management activities that are harmful to our unions.
We pride ourselves in the mission of building a strong workplace that fosters true union democracy, solidarity and nurtures new ideas from every member. This mission allows everyone to stay on top of what management and local union officials are doing by building communication networks in our departments.
We regularly hold meetings in Kokomo with discussions on many issues ranging from general communication, factory news, tactics and how we can build more solidarity on the shop floor. Since 2005 we have typically met once every few weeks to discuss these issues and the issues of the entire auto industry.
We have many other rank-n-file, elected, retired and even international union members from around the country who often attend and help our efforts. If you or your co-workers support the SOS Program below and you are interested in joining us and attending our meetings to help build solidarity and educated other members on the shop floor you can e-mail us at webmaster.
