Location Change
Hello Brothers and Sisters!  Historically, our local union meeting in April is hosted at another location, UAW Local 724, 450 Clare Street, Lansing, MI 18917 due to our guest speakers on that day.  This April, we will continue with that same tradition.
Our retirees will meet with our VEBA trustee at 12:00 p.m. (noon) on April 22nd while we provide lunch.  The active caregivers will meet at 5:00 p.m. for our general membership meeting with the VEBA trustee as the guest speaker.  Please make a note for the change of address for the April meetings.

Did You Know…
Article 20 in our Sparrow contract books addresses Bereavement in the event of a death of an immediate family member for our caregivers.  But, you may not know that Sparrow cannot notify the union (due to HIPPA violations) when a caregiver is on bereavement.  Our union Bylaws state that “one bible shall be given to UAW members whose immediate family members have deceased”.  The definition of “immediate family members” is listed in the contract books under Article 20, in Section 20.8.  
Therefore, as a member of Local 4911, if you are on Bereavement due to experiencing the death of an immediate family member defined in Article 20.8, please notify your steward, chairperson, an Executive Board member, or call the union office at 372-7201.  If you are interested in receiving a Bible, we can verify if you have received a Bible in the past or if you are eligible to receive one.
