Working with unions since 2014
Founded in 2014, CB Auto Group is an organization located in Georgia that has been constantly involved in the development and improvement of its prime service, the Union Auto Program.
Working on a regional basis since its inception, CB Auto Group and its chairman, John Perez, have worked on developing the trust of labor unions across the southern states, initially starting with the Georgia American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (“AFL-CIO”), and expanding to other states as time went on. The AFL-CIO being largest federation of unions within the United States.
By December 2015, Mr. Perez had gained the approval of the Georgia AFL-CIO board of directors for the program. In August of 2016, CB Auto Group had launched an initial trial of the Union Auto Program, restricted to the state of Georgia. As months passed, and word of the program spread, labor unions across the south began to invite Mr. Perez in order to present the program to their board/constituents and bring it to their states as well.
Three years after its initial launch, Mr. Perez is now addressing AFL-CIO state conventions attended by all state delegates, each of which represent union members in their respective state. Currently, CB Auto Group has expanded the Union Auto Program to a total of 14 states within the South Eastern region of the United States and is working on further expanding the program to the rest of the US within the coming years.
With the continued support of unions coming into place, CB Auto is taking the lessons it has learned during its pilot program and is putting those into practice by assembling a group of national vendors to execute the program across the country.
