Since 1992, the National Writers Union has been affiliated with the International Union of the United Automobile Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America.
Over the years, the United Auto Workers (UAW) has provided crucial resources for supporting the work of the union in advancing the economic and working conditions of writers. Affiliation also promotes the interest of writers not only through alliance with the UAW, but with the American labor movement and its millions of members.
Through affiliation with the UAW, working writers can help shape the political and economic conditions that have tremendous impact on writers' working lives. Affiliation recognizes the common aspirations that writers share with other working people, and common needs for peace and justice, healthcare, education, a livelihood, and democratic institutions.
