At the United Auto Workers (UAW) National CAP Conference, the UAW declared its endorsement for the reelection of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. UAW President Shawn Fain took the opportunity to criticize former President Donald Trump, branding him as a “scab” and denouncing his anti-worker policies, which he argued favored the billionaire class.

Fain highlighted the stark contrast between the two administrations, praising President Biden for his historic commitment to union and labor rights. The UAW’s endorsement aligns with its vision of supporting leaders who prioritize the interests of workers and stand against policies perceived as detrimental to the workforce.

“This is a very significant political endorsement and coming just the day after President Biden’s campaign unofficially said this was the start of the general election,” said CNN’s MJ Lee. “Heading into this general election. … In the remarks that we heard from the president earlier today, we heard him explicitly calling out President Trump as he tries to cast himself as being the candidate of the working class.”


The announcement at the National CAP Conference underlines the UAW’s commitment to actively shaping the political landscape by endorsing candidates aligned with their values and advocating for the rights and well-being of workers.
