The GimmeFive program was launched at the 35th UAW Convention in June 2010 by President Bob King, the newly elected International Officers and Regional Directors, and the UAW Local Union Delegates. GimmeFive recruits and engages members in a new and innovative mobilizing program to Organize, Build Power and Win Justice for our union and community. TOGETHER WE WIN!
Each time you complete a task you will be rewarded for your hard work with a new button. The goal is to collect all five buttons…the official GimmeFive, Power, Organize, Mobilize and Justice buttons. Each UAW Region will compete for the highest level of GimmeFive activism and will be acknowledged for their hard work at the Community Action Program (CAP) Conference in January 2011.
To participate in GimmeFive, first you need to sign up for the program. See UAW Local 652 President Mike Green or Vice-President Randy Freeman at the Local 652 Union Hall and they will help sign you up. Once you are signed up for GimmeFive you will receive a confirmation with information to track your activities and when to expect your official GimmeFive button.
