A video featuring Detroit's own Eminem was played Wednesday during the United Auto Workers' three-day bargaining convention at Cobo Center.

The three-minute video, narrated by by Eminem, encouraged UAW members to not give up.

WATCH:

"You took our country from its infancy into industry," Eminem said in the video. "Your name still carries with it the idea of a nation built on steel, muscle and sweat."

"You know that nothing is accomplished without hard work and sacrifice," Eminem said. "You've built us; you've moved us."

The video was originally produced for the 2009 NCAA Final Four.
