Greetings to All

With the winter weather firmly taking hold we can all dream of warmer days. When warmer days do arrive let us not forget that by the time those months hit that the decision by General Motors to shutter factories in the US and move work to Mexico will already be affecting our fellow UAW Brothers and Sisters. The effects of the GM decision will have far reaching implications beyond just GM jobs. It will affect the UAW members, and their families, at our Supplier plants and the communities around those plants. When the UAW and the American people stepped up to help General Motors out in 2009 we never expected to be paid back like this. The American public and the UAW have started a campaign to let GM know that we invested in them and now they need to invest in US! Please join this movement to let GM know that what they are doing to their workers and their families is not ok. On the Local front we are still navigating the process to have our sewer system repaired. Some of our Units have announced layoffs related to the recent GM decisions. Please keep these members in your thoughts and prayers that this is only a temporary situation. The Local will have elections for a Trustee position and a Guide position happening soon (please see the election notice). There are still some Standing Committee positions open at the Local. If any member is interested in getting more involved please attend the next General Membership meeting which are the second Tuesday of the month at 5:00 pm.
Lastly let us not forget the recent passing of the longest serving Congressperson in the United States John Dingell. His dedication to serving the citizens of Michigan were second to none. Thank you John for all that you did for the American people and the citizens of Michigan. May you rest in peace.
"Compromise is an honorable word."
-- John Dingell
