Hello Brothers and Sisters,


The state primary is Aug. 4 and I encourage all members to cast their votes -- not only for these offices, but also for your Local Union leaders on July 16th (from to 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Union Hall or from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. in front of the Plant cafeteria). The run-off date, if needed, is July 23 at the same times and places.


I would like to recognize all Union members who won by acclamation and will serve until 2023:


Yvonne Vincent - President

Mandy DeMars -Recording Secretary

Jean Duchemin - Sergeant-at-Arms

Randy Wickham - Guide

Arniece “Poochie” Stephenson - GM Chairperson

Mandy DeMars - District 1  Committee Person

Jean Duchemin - District 2 Committee Person

Amy Wood - Eurest Chairperson

Justice Coleman - By Laws Chairperson

Jeremy Jackson - Community Action Program Chairperson

Jean Duchemin - Education Chairperson

Mandy DeMars - Recreation Chairperson

Jason Elston - Union Label Chairperson


These are all the people who have stepped up and volunteered their time to try and make our workplace better and our Union stronger. They will need your support and help in order to accomplish this. This means knowing your rights under the Contract. This means not doing special favors for your supervisor. This means looking out for your fellow coworkers and not doing what just benefits you. 


We need to build solidarity and stand up for each other, not just in the Plant, but also in our communities. Take part in recreational events that we host. Buy American/Union-made products. Vote in all elections, not just “the big one.” Volunteer in your community. Thank a Veteran or a Peace Corps worker. And right now, most importantly while we have Leadership’s ear (within GM, within the city, within the state), support civil rights. Be antiracist (an active upstander) instead of nonracist (a passive bystander). Let it be known that there is not equality in the world. Demand accountability for the anti-Blackness that killed George Floyd, Ahmed Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade and so many others. Go to a rally. Call your government. Write a letter to Congress. Educate yourself. Join the struggle to create a better world. (For resources, click on the links in this article at


In Solidarity,

Yvonne Vincent
