Greetings Sisters and Brothers;
I’m trying to be very positive this year after a hard challenging year, and in every sense of the word; 2021 is still bringing us some of the same but if we mask up and get vaccinated when they are available to us we can beat this monster pandemic that is taking our loved ones and friends.
With a heavy heart I’m letting you know that we lost Kirk (Shorty) Alexander, Trustee of our Retirees E-Board. A gentle giant, a friend, and union brother that was always there in every meeting, greeting and uniting us. He would call and check on the members in between meetings.
You will be missed brother. Our heart goes out to his beautiful wife Janet and his family.
Our active retirees that attend our events is getting smaller as we lost many last year. It has been over a year since we have had a luncheon. I have received information from UAW International Union that the Covid guidelines have been reviewed and they have extended the recommendation to avoid meetings. The UAW International will review again in June. Please refer to the Local 602 website for updates or call the Hall.
I will continue to do all I can for our membership and support you in any capacity possible. I do hope that when we can come back to meetings you will join us, meanwhile please stay safe.
Remember to be kind to each other because you never know when is the last time we see each other.
Love peace and justice,
