Last month’s meeting went very well, with had a nice turnout consider the meeting was the first meeting since our meetings had been canceled since last March 2020. The good news almost 100% of those in attendance had received at least one of the COVID-19 vaccinations.  Hopefully with the continued progress with the vaccine we will get this dreadful pandemic behind us and get back to a more normal life.

Without a benefit representative it is difficult to know what to do in the event of the death of a member or surviving spouse. Pension, Life Insurance and Health Care are all impacted by a death. Here is what the survivors should do:

For more than 45 years, the Family Education Center has been a place where UAW members and their families come together for an experience that combines education with recreation.

This will be our first meeting since January.  We felt the need to hold off on meetings until we could see that the COVID-19 once again had become less of a threat to our group.  I believe we made the right decision because we continued to lose members as a result of this dreadful Omicron outbreak.

Once again I have invited our UAW Trust and our vendors to the meeting.  I have no response at this time if they have lifted their travel restrictions. 

Detroit - During the 2019 Collective Bargaining with Stellantis, the UAW bargaining team fought hard for an enhanced profit sharing formula that more fairly distributed profit earnings based on the company's unique structure. Today’s announcement that eligible UAW Stellantis members will receive an eligible profit sharing amount of $14,670 is a reflection of the hard work and dedication UAW members bring toward the success of Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge and RAM sales.
