There is a lot of discussion around Project 2025, what it is and what it says. As union members, the plans outlined in Project 2025 should concern us all. It calls for draconian actions that would make the American Dream much harder to achieve for working class Americans.

An organizing drive at the Mercedes location in Vance, Alabama last week failed to pass in a close vote. Alabama Governor Kay Ivey attacked organizing efforts stating, “Alabama is not Michigan.” Well, Governor Ivey for once you are correct. Problem is, your statement does not reflect well on the state you represent when you compare the quality of life for workers in the two states.

John and I attended the UAW Region 8 Retiree Conference at the end of April, we will be sharing the information we picked up at the meetings. That does include the ongoing discussion regarding the retirees who didn't receive the $500. bonus.

We will have our healthcare vendors at this upcoming meeting. If you have, Blue Cross or United Health Care you should be able to receive help with any issue you may have.

I have been notified by a representative from the GM Department of the UAW, after several meetings and talks between the UAW leadership and General Motors representative to secure the bonus for those who retired from the Delphi Pant and checked the box on their paper work prior to their retirement to remain a GM Retiree will now be eligible to receive the negotiate bonus of $500. per year as outlined in the 2023 UAW/GM National Contract negotiations settlement.

We hope everyone is doing well and looking forward to the upcoming Spring and hopefully nice warm weather. 

Remembering Easter weekend our eternal existence made possible due to the sacrifice and death of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Hoping everyone made it through the ice/storm okay.

I know the big question is still open regarding several of the GM/Delphi retiree’s bonuses.

I have talked with the International UAW/GM Department Benefits Coordinator on several occasions and he tells me they are meeting with the GM HR Representatives and this is a very hot topic of their meeting.
