Hwy 31, Decatur, AL

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. 

It’s a place to learn about our union, unlock ideas and build new friendships with other UAW families. 

RETIREE MEETING APRIL 11
Monday 11:00 am
American Legion Hall Post 15
Hwy. 31 Decatur, AL

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.

Detroit – “Through their negotiated contract, UAW members today received news that they will receive up to $10,250 in profit sharing. This benefit was achieved through collective bargaining and our UAW members have earned a share of the prosperity that their skill, hard work and dedication created. Our members should be proud during a challenging year at this achievement. We continue to talk to our local unions and General Motors about some of the unforeseen challenges UAW members faced this year.”
My sisters and brothers, This great union of ours and all of our UAW family, past and present, have a long and cherished legacy in fighting for the civil rights and equality of all Americans and all peoples of the world. It is one of the founding principles of our union and we have much to be proud about.
