I would start by saying thanks to all who provided food for our November Meeting and Thanksgiving luncheon.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the meal very much.

June 12, 2023

UAW Local 2195 held there last meeting before the summer break. The meeting featured a meal and special guest, retired UAW President Ray Curry. Ray Curry is very familiar to Local 2195 members, as he was our servicing rep starting in 2004 and went on to hold the title of assistant director, Region 8 Director, Secretary Treasurer and then President.

Chair Chuck McDonald conducted the drawing for door prizes provided by Lynn Layton Chevrolet.

I hope this email finds everyone doing well; we are excited about our June Retiree Meeting.

Not only are we looking forward to a fantastic luncheon we are going to have as our guest speaker Brother Ray Curry.  All our members pretty well know Brother Curry, he not only served us as our International Representative during our most difficult times during our plant closing he was there fighting and helping to secure the benefits we enjoy as retirees.

We would continue to thank Lynn Layton Chevrolet for their continued sponsorship of our Retiree Chapter.  Lynn and Jeff also send out thanks to our members for their continued trust and faith in doing business with them and their dealerships in the Decatur area.

Brother and Sisters, I'm going to make this short:

Our Union is at an important cross-road.  We are engaged in a major change that could have serious implication for the future of our great Union, both for active and retired workers.
