I am Tim Smith,UAW Region 8 Director and this is my personal communication page. Region 8 represents over 200,000 active and retired United Auto Workers across 18 states across the southern portion of the United States from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean.

Covering that much area can be a daunting task, but we in the UAW are resilient. Our official page is uawregion8.org, which presents news and events for our members. It is my hope this page will compliment that page and provide addition information for our members.

I will share news from our region, photos of the membership, my schedule (I would love to meet members as I travel across the region) and news from the industries our members work for.

For me it is both an honor and a privilege to serve this membership every day.  I am so pleased you took the time to look at my page and hopefully you will find useful information here!

In Solidarity,
UAW Region 8 Director
Tim Smith
