    Trumka: speech to the 35th UAW Constitutional Convention

      . . . On the West Coast -- with the UAW, the AFL-CIO, the California State Federation of Labor, and the local labor councils all working as a team -- we’re ready to ensure that the closed NUMMI plant re-opens its gates immediately after the American flag and the UAW flag are raised above the plant.

    Tesla Motor vehicles will be built in the United States, in the state of California, by American workers who have a UAW card in their pockets and the union in their hearts.

    As union-made vehicles roll off the assembly lines in Fremont, we take equal pride in what is happening on the other side of our country. Fisker Automotive will be assembling clean, green, top-quality vehicles in the idled General Motors plant in Wilmington, Delaware.

    These vehicles, too, will bear the UAW emblem. They will be built by proud UAW members. And they will prove that workers enjoying American rights and earning middle-class wages can make world-class products. . . .
