April 2019

I am very pleased to share the news that Local 4911 has successfully ratified our four contracts. Our Bargaining Team reached its first tentative agreement at 5pm on November 30, 2018.  Since that date, two Agreements were subsequently rejected by the membership, which sent our Bargaining Team back to the table for the third attempt at a agreement.  On April 12 the TA was officially ratified in a overwhelming vote count.

On another note, I spoke on charitable donations this year at the 2019 Region 1D leadership conference at the Grand Travers Resort. As a labor union, it is our duty to improve the community in which we live and work. I believe giving to different charities is essential for this cause.  But what is equally important, is following up the money we are so fortunate to be able to give with our service. Every Local has a Executive Board along with mandatory standing committees which all have a duty to further the labor movement and improve the lives of those who work and live in our communities. As first Vice President of the Region 1D leadership council, I would urge everyone not only to donate financially but to also commit our time, showing our communities the true values of the UAW.
