In 1935, the National Labor Relations Act brought unions to the automotive industry, and the UAW was formed.
After 1945, however, American people purchased over 21 million vehicles, and the UAW found a new leader in Walter Reuther.
The United Auto Workers (UAW) union has been a strong force since the early 1940s.
Other groups were appointed to handle manufacturer warranties, vendor and part supplier issues, and negotiations with the United Auto Workers Union or UAW.
However, the automaker did increase funding to the UAW Voluntary Employees Beneficiary Association or VEBA.
