Local 2195 Retiree Report

Since we have no meetings scheduled and it appears it will be that way until after the first of the year or until we are confident that the retirees can come together in a safe environment without fearing the dangers of COVID19. This pandemic is real and since March it has already cost an estimated 225,000 lives as well as over 8 million that have tested positive. Many of our retirees can put names on those deaths family members and friends. We have had a number of our retirees that have contracted this COVID-19.

Facts About the Payroll Tax and Social Security
by Region 8 Webmaster John Davis

Recently President Trump issued an executive order to defer payroll taxes until next year. He also stated if he is reelected then he would work to end the payroll tax. This move would seriously damage Social Security and jeopardize the future of the program.
In 1935 President Franklin Roosevelt signed into the Social Security Act. The purpose of the law was to provide retirement security for citizens who reach retirement age. Later on the law was expanded to provide income security for disabled Americans. Social Security is the term used to identify the federal program Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI). As with any insurance program, it operates on the premise of shared risk between the participants.

Local 2195 Retiree Update

This is Labor Day; It is my hope we as members of a Union take time to remember what this day truly represents. We should all say a little word of thanks for all the sacrifices that working people have made for our labor to be recognized with this special day. The struggles working men and women have endure to provide us the opportunity to gain the wages and benefits that we have enjoyed both while we were working and in our retirement. I say thank you and I pray we will continue the fight for economic and social justice for all working men and women as well as our Country.

 UAW Trust Offers Phone Updates
Per our phone call this afternoon, just so you know the Trust and the healthcare vendors (Blue Cross, Aetna, Express Scripts, etc.) will not be attending meetings for the rest of the year due to the pandemic.

 August 7, 2020
It has been a long time since our last meeting, which was in March. The sad part is we have no idea when we might be able to have our next meeting.

Hopefully we will see an end to this pandemic known as COVID-19. It is my understanding that there is only two ways this can end. 1) a vaccination that will help eradicate the virus or 2) The virus has too runs its course impacting all that it can and it will fade away when our bodies build and immunity.

 Attention Local 2195 UAW Retirees

 Walter P. Reuther is an icon and an American hero of the working class. For those of us at the UAW, there are almost no words powerful enough to describe what he means to this union and our members. And for me, as the current president of the UAW, I am so humbled and inspired by his vision, his life’s work, his tireless fight for human and civil rights and simply put, the example he set as an extraordinary human being.

Hello my Union Brothers and Sisters hope you are doing well and staying away from this COVID-19 Virus. Most of the retires I talk too tell me they are hunkered down waiting for this virus epidemic to be over and hopefully we can return to something close to normal. That is our hope and prayer for our Country and the World as a whole. However we do not know the answer too what normal will look like in the future. There are still too many unanswered questions that only time will reveal. So please stay safe and practice all the prescribed methods that have been recommended for staying COVID-19 free.

  Hello Brothers and Sisters,
I hope everyone is doing well and staying as safe as the times will possibly allow. There is no question that this CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19) is the most serious outbreak of a disease most of us have witness in our life time. We hold out hope a

 Many have asked what can we do to assist? We will have two drop-off sites next Wednesday, 25th of September, one in Decatur and one in Athens. We will take all donation to Spring Hill, TN and give them to the Strike Committee to be distributed at their Local 1853 Union Hall, we will deliver all donations on Friday Morning September 27th. Any and all are welcome to go with us.

 It is very early in the UAW/GM strike. I have been asked several time what can we do too show support for our Sisters and Brothers on strike? I will be contacting the President at UAW Local 1853, in Spring Hill, TN, (that is our closest GM Plant), to determine what their needs may be and how we can best help their members. I will find out when would be a good time for us too visit.

Each individual has the right to go there an show their support..... I would encourage you to go by the UNION HALL to ensure that everything is done in an orderly manner. As time goes on the needs will become greater. I'm sure our Region 8 leadership will be reach-out to us for assistance. Thanks for all the interest in helping our Sisters and Bothers.

The current debate in Washington is over partial funding for a border wall. While everyone agrees that border security is important, how to do that is the where the debate begins. To find a solution we should look at the facts surrounding the issue.

Thanksgiving Message from UAW Region 8 Director Mitchell Smith
As the Thanksgiving holiday is quickly approaching, many Americans will get up and turn on the television and watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. Afterwards, everyone will gather around the table and enjoy a wonderful traditional Thanksgiving meal, followed by naps and football. However, is that what Thanksgiving should really be about? Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on the blessings of our lives. Sometimes, we can become overwhelmed by the things around us. It seems that we face obstacles every day that bring us down and it is easy to become discouraged. However, we must never lose sight of the blessings in our life.

 Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr
A Voice For Today

by UAW Local 2195 Webmaster John Davis

On January 15, 2018, our country will once again observe the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King was a voice of reason who led peaceful protests during a dark time, a time when hate and prejudice was accepted as common behavior. His quotes were pearls of wisdom during a turbulent time. During the troubled times of today, it would benefit us to remind our nation of some of his most heart searing statements.

 Local 2195 retirees collected $600 for the victims of Hurricane Harvey at their meeting on September 11, 2017. At this month’s meeting those in attendance took a collection for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. “We always want to help, and the victims of Hurricane Harvey are definitely in a situation where they need our help,” states Local 2195 Retiree Chair Chuck McDonald. “The UAW has a long history of coming to the aid of those in need and this was no different.”

Freedom to Join Unions Can Fix This Rigged Economy

Across the country, Americans are working longer hours for less money and fewer benefits, despite being more productive than ever. No matter how hard we work, many are finding it more and more difficult to get by and provide for their families. All the while, a handful of CEOs and those who are already rich have seen their salaries and wealth skyrocket.
This is not by accident.

 Labor Day 2017

Big corporations, politicians and wealthy interests have rigged our economy and our politics against working people for decades. They have robbed Americans of the freedom to earn a decent living, have work-life balance, take a loved one to the doctor or attend a parent-teacher conference without fear of losing their job, and retire with dignity.

 Senate Republicans have abandoned their efforts to replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and instead are planning to vote this week on a full repeal of the ACA. Non-partisan experts have concluded that 32 million Americans will lose health care due to this bill, with roughly 18 million losing health care next year, including 3 million who would lose their employer-provided insurance. Senate Republicans plan of full repeal will also raise individual premiums by 25% in 2018 and double them in 10 years. And a return of the Medicare Part D donut hole means retirees and seniors will be left paying more for health care and prescription drugs. Reply CALL now or dial 1-318-300-1249 to be connected to your Senator's office, tell them you're a voter in their state, where you live, and that you want them to VOTE NO on repealing the Affordable Care Act!

  Honoring All Workers on Labor Day

Once again we prepare for the Labor Day weekend. Picnics, cookouts, and football help to celebrate the last hurray of summer. Over the course of time, the real reason for Labor Day has been lost to recreational pursuits, but we should always remember that Labor Day is the one day of the year set aside to recognize America’s workers. After all, it is America’s workers that built this great nation- not the robber barons and vulture capitalists on Wall Street.

 Workers Memorial Day 2016: Dedicating Ourselves Anew

By UAW Region 8 Webmaster John Davis

On April 28, 2016, Workers Memorial Day will once again be observed. This day has been set aside to remember workers who died on the job since 1970. The AFL-CIO organized the event after the passage of the Occupational Safety and Health Act in 1970. Each year on April 28, labor pauses to remember those who died on the job in the past year.

 Thanksgiving Message from UAW Region 8 Director Ray Curry

Thanksgiving Day is right around the corner - a time of reflection and taking stock in the blessings in our lives. With the events of the past few days, it is easy to get depressed with the terrorist attacks in Paris. Our sense of security is shaken every time one of these attacks occurs and rightly so. It is important to remember that with all the problems we have, the United States is still the greatest nation on Earth.

 Why Can’t Every Day Be Like Labor Day

It is the first Monday in September. You slip out of bed while the family sleeps in. You reach in the closet and grab your “Union First Shirt” and your local union cap. Driving to the union hall you notice a nip in the air as Fall lies just around the corner.

Pulling into the parking lot at the union hall you jump out and start helping with the last minute decorating of the Labor Day Parade float. The parade begins and you walk alongside the float waving at the sparse crowd. Later standing in the crowd, you clap as the last Democrat in your state legislature gives a speech about the importance of raising the minimum wage. Heading back home, you switch shirts, grab your “born to grill” apron and spend the rest of the day stuffing yourself on ribs and potato salad. The plight of the poor bothers you as you watch football on your big screen TV and head off to bed.

 Food Stamps & Steak and Seafood: Fact from Fiction

By John Davis Local 2195 Webmaster and LUCA Advisory Council Chair

In February, Missouri State Rep. Rick Brattin introduced a bill to prohibit Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program recipients from using their benefits to buy "cookies, chips, energy drinks, soft drinks, seafood, or steak." Brattin’s bill seems unlikely to go anywhere, but the conservative media outlets are having a field day using the idea to demonize citizens unlucky enough to qualify for food stamps.

Remembering Selma Fifty Years Later
By UAW Region 8 Webmaster and LUCA Advisory Council Chair John Davis

On March 7 and 8, 2015, thousands of people descended upon Selma, Alabama to observe the 50th anniversary of an important event from the Civil Rights movement that has become known as “Bloody Sunday.” The event was marked with politicians, Civil Rights leaders, celebrities and activist coming together to remember the event from half a century ago. News networks from around the world attended the event with recounts of the day’s events being featured on TV, print and internet around the globe. However, fifty years ago the actual event was much different.

2014 Midterm Elections: It Is All About Social Security
By UAW Region 8 Webmaster John Davis
October 3, 2014

2014 midterm elections are looming large on the horizon. The midterms are always a difficult cycle to get a true grasp on America’s concerns due to lower voter turnout in the absence of a presidential election. However, we often lose sight of the fact that the House and Senate actually pass the laws that affect us day to day. Since the Supreme Court decided that corporations are people in 2010, money funneled from the wealthy have impacted our elections by flooding the airwaves with ads designed to muddy the issues around candidates and confuse America’s voters into voting for candidates whose agenda is to promote the wealthy.

Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr. 2013
by John T. Davis Region 8 Webmaster and LUPA Advisory Council Chair

When I think of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. - greatest comes to mind. But then what does it mean to be great? What places a person in that category? Maybe standing in the face of adversity to do the right thing? Or having the courage to stand up for the right thing when the public turns against you? Could it be defending the weak and offering a hand up rather than a push down? Finally- having the fortitude to forgive rather than retaliate when you have been wronged?

There are more to the Amendments than what is being reported.

You are welcome to bring a friend or invited other Union Members to the meeting.


Two issues keep coming up:

Several retirees received two checks in the mail. These checks were for the stated reason that during Contract Negotiations employees that received an up front signing bonus for 1996, 1999, 2000 and/or 2003 were required to pay F.I.C.A. and Medicare taxes therefore there was a settlement made between General Motors/Delphi and the Federal Government that these bonuses were not "wages". If you received a check we suggest you cash and enjoy,

Most will be receiving a check from Delphi and or GM concerning a settlement over contract signing bonuses. GM and Ford sued the federal government over the taxes on those signing bonuses and won. This is for real - do not throw it away. Checks must be cashed November 13, 2012.

Mitt Romney- Just Like You and Me?
by John Davis LUPA Advisory Council Chair
For the past four years the conservative media has hammered President Obama constantly, saying he is “out of touch” and “not like us.” Right wing bloggers have repeated the Kenya Prophecy nonsense.
Now they are hard at work trying to convince us that “Mitt Romney is just like you and me.” They would have us believe that Romney is a self made man, who has used the “American Way” to become a successful business man. But just how much do middle class Americans have with Mitt Romney? Actually very little if you look at who Romney really is. Read more >>>

These days the media is filled with talk of the deficit and ways to correct the problem. The deficit is and should be a concern to all Americans. However, the conservatives have been hawking the evils of the deficit and pointing fingers and screaming cuts. However it is important to understand the real cause behind the deficit. To understand the issue fully, we need to go back to where the issue began.
