Designed to increase activism, recruit and engage members to organize, building power and win justice for our union and community. The program simply asks members to recommit to the union by devoting time in the following areas: recruitment, mobilizing, organizing, political action and community involvement. Members will receive a button for every five (5) activities attended. 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 every calendar year. The Regions with highest level of recruitment and activism will receive recognition at the yearly UAW CAP Conference. 2
As a direct reflection of the continuous growth in the GimmeFIVE Program, we would like to unveil the NEW Community button. Due to the tremendous support and effort our members contribute to the community, we felt this was a necessary addition to the program. Another big announcement, effective November 2011, the GimmeFIVE Program has changed from HOURS to ACTIVITIES to further increase activism within our membership and make it easier for members to report their activism. We are energized about the new features to the GimmeFIVE Program, including the addition of Español pages for our Spanish members. 3
