How to revoke your union authorization card.
Some team members who signed union authorization cards before they had all the facts or because of deceptive UAW claims and promises have asked us for information about withdrawing their cards. Also, as most of you are aware, the UAW supporters have resorted to threats, intimidation and harassment in an effort to get team members to sign cards. If you have signed a card and wish to revoke it then here is how it’s done.
1. Write a letter, like the sample letter below, to the UAW International, the local UAW organizer (if known) and to TMMK’s HR department.
2. The letter to the UAW International and the local UAW organizer should be sent by Certified Mail, Return Receipt Requested.
3. The letter to TMMK’s HR should be sent via regular mail or hand delivered.

Effective immediately, I hereby revoke and rescind any authorization card that I may have signed seeking to have the UAW represent me for purposes of collective bargaining with my employer.
You are now on notice that I do NOT want UAW representation, and you may NOT count any card that I signed as evidence that I desire such representation. Please have the courtesy to immediately return to me, by mail, any card that I may have signed seeking or requesting UAW representation.
Now that you are on notice of my revocation and rescission of any and all UAW authorization cards, you must inform any “neutral” or other person or entity authorized to count authorization cards or conduct an election, including the NLRB, that my card is null and void, and that such card may NOT be considered as support for the UAW in any “card check” process, any similar request for recognition, or any certification election.
Finally, this letter revoking my authorization for UAW representation should be deemed to be irrevocable for one year from today’s date.
Again, I ask you to give me the courtesy of a prompt written reply to this letter.
