September Retiree Meeting

 Retiree Meeting
September 10, 2018
11:00 am
American Legion Post 15
Decatur. AL

This will be the first meeting that has not been held in our Union Hall, sad to say there will be no more. We had the Auction for all the content, August 4. The Auction was conducted by our friend and member John Stewart, as you may know John is a licensed professional auctioneer. We think him for all of his hard work that was in fact donated as well as his dedication in assisting us with this mammoth undertaking. We can say mission accomplished, although it was very sad day. Thanks John, we don’t know what we would have done without your expertise.

Since our meeting in June we have lost several of our members, the list is way too long and their names will be reported at our meetings as we normally do. I would like to give Amy Terry Seymore a shout out of gratitude for all the work she does in keeping up with our deceased members. Your work is much appreciated.

We are scheduled to have Representatives from Blue Cross and Aetna at our meeting to assist you with any problems you may have with your medical insurance (bills or questions). At our October meeting the UAW HEALTH CARE TRUST, REPRESENTATIVES will be at the meeting to explain and inform us of any up-coming changes to our health care program in the coming year.

I regret to inform each and every one that there will not be a meal served at this meeting. We are in the process of figure out what we can do in the future. It is very difficult to make arrangements when you move to a new facility. We are going to be requesting volunteers to help in planning and handling our luncheon at future meetings. We believe there will be some nice door prizes given out by our sponsor.

Remembering that today is Labor Day a man once told me, “that he who labor for a living normally has to sale their labor to cheap”. Let us be thankful that our years of union members and the benefits we gained from Contracts and our labor keep us in the middle class with the ability to support our family and most of our personal needs. There are many that came before us that not only gave their life fighting for what we have today. There were thousand that lived who sacrificed untold hardship so that we could enjoy the life that we have been privileged to live. My thought for this Labor Day Weekend, enjoy.

Hope to see you at the meeting.
In Solidarity,
Chuck
