Hello Union Brothers and Sisters. Summer has come to an end and I would like to thank those that helped with getting back pack supplies. The 8th Annual Community-Wide Back to school Rally and Resource fair held at UAW Local 602 appreciates the support. We sent 6 people to Summer/Fall school at Black Lake and are enjoying the positive/ educational energy they are bringing back to the shop. If you are interested in the T-shirts, they are in the final design phase by the women's committee, no set date on when they will be ready to order. We have a "build a terrarium" event happening at the Union Hall on October 13th. I encourage anyone interested to come and bring a friend/ family member(s). It is $15 to create one. To our new members, we traditionally have a weenie roast on Halloween. Make sure you are looking at the Union Information boards for time and place.
November 6th Americans have the right to vote in the midterm elections. These elections are important. Please exercise your right to vote. In this paper there is a slate of people the UAW is backing based on their stance for Unions and Labor friendliness. Please consider these candidates.
In the Plant we currently have a vacancy for the 2nd Shift Alt. Committee person.
We are accepting nominations for this on October 9th and 16th 12:30 pm to 3:00pm at the UAW Local 1753 Union Hall.
Pending membership approval at the meting, the voting date is October 30th at the Union Hall from 11am to noon. In the Plant voting will take place from 12:30pm to 3pm and again at 8:45pm to 9:45pm. Please check the Union Information boards for these postings.
Together we are stronger. Wednesdays are red shirt days. Please wear a red shirt to show your unity.
