WELCOME TO CHILD CARE PROVIDERS
TOGETHER MICHIGAN, UAW LOCAL 7127!

About 60 percent of Michigan’s children in subsidized care receive that care in the home setting. You have such an important job in nurturing and caring for the children of parents qualified to receive state assistance as those parents seek education or work to move off the state’s welfare rolls to make
life better for themselves and their family.

Child Care Providers Together Michigan is a voluntary labor union that was created by the International Union, UAW and Michigan AFSCME Council 25 to jointly represent child care providers like you who receive a subsidy to care for children through the State-administered Temporary Aid to Needy Families (TANF) program.
CCPTM strives to enhance the quality of home-based child care for Michigan’s children by providing providers with opportunities to come together to discuss their work problems and achievements, improve their professional development through training, and work with coalition partners and advocate for child care improvements to elected decision-makers.
CCPTM exists to allow providers like you to have a strong voice in a child care and welfare system that depends on your skill and dedication to provide a stable and nurturing home-based child care environment for the State’s most vulnerable children.
CCPTM provides voluntary paying members representation rights, access to training, and members-only benefits such as discounts on home mortgage financing and cell phone packages and other valuable, money-saving programs. CCPTM also lobbies in the Michigan Legislature on behalf of its members for higher wage rates and dignity on the job.
Join us and make life better for yourself and Michigan’s most valuable asset: our children!

DETROIT – We commend President Obama for his leadership and support for the U.S. auto industry. His actions helped prevent a second Great Depression, saving more than a million American jobs in the process. Domestic automakers have pledged investment in U.S. plants through 2015 that will mean more than 40,000 direct manufacturing jobs in the United States.

The renewed American automotive industry is now America’s No. 1 export sector. The Obama administration, American workers and retirees, and the U.S. automotive industry made tough choices and sacrifices to make this turnaround possible. The automobile sector supports over 3 million good-paying jobs in assembly plants, auto parts manufacturing, repair shops, dealerships and other supporting businesses nationwide. In 2012, U.S. automotive exports totaled $133 billion, an increase of more than $17 billion (14 percent) over 2011. Domestic manufacturing has long been the foundation of a strong middle class, and the automobile industry is the one of the most critical for U.S. manufacturing.

Under the president’s leadership, we are implementing higher fuel efficiency standards from 2017-2025, effectively doubling vehicle fuel efficiency, drastically reducing carbon emissions and creating several hundred thousand jobs. About 50,000 of these jobs will be in auto parts manufacturing and vehicle assembly alone.

From all reports we’ve seen, President Obama is going to propose a budget plan this week that is unprecedented for a Democratic president. It will propose a cut to Social Security benefits for seniors, veterans and people with disabilities.

It appears the proposed cut will take the form of “chained” CPI—a discredited way of calculating annual cost-of-living increases that does not keep up with actual costs, eating into benefits.

But there’s more. The president’s budget proposal also would require middle-class seniors—people who make $47,000 a year and more—to pay higher Medicare premiums.

DETROIT – Even after Chrysler Corp.'s Gualberto Ranieri, vice president of communications, said Friday, “Let's set the record straight: Jeep has no intention of shifting production of its Jeep models out of North America to China,” the Romney campaign put out a false and misleading ad basically repeating his bogus statement made Thursday in Ohio that Chrysler was moving all Jeep production to China.

Author Greg Palast, in his book, "Billionaires and Ballot Bandits," examines the role Mitt Romney played in the Delphi bailout and how he and other economic vultures made millions as the storied parts supplier went into and came out of bankruptcy. In this video, Palast tells how Mitt and Ann Romney made at least $15 million from the carcass of Delphi and as much as $115 million.  

It also shows how Romney's cronies made more than $4 billion off the bankruptcy. These same billionaires also contributed millions to his presidential campaign. 

DETROIT -- Two days after GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney told a crowd near Toledo, Ohio, that Chrysler was moving all Jeep production to China, the GOP candidate appears to be unfazed by his incorrect remarks and remains mum on the subject..  Read more >>>
