OUR JULY 26TH ANNUAL PICNIC
We went from this:
As we report EVERY year, the food from Gaylord's (Madison) was
outstanding! It's a wonderful sight to see our parking lot and
Hall full! We are very thankful for our Retirees. Their hard
work and monetary donations helps us keep our Hall in tip-top shape.
ALL our officers of Local 95 are RETIREES and volunteer their time, not
only for their "officer work", but for projects at the Hall.
They just finished the Hall Ceiling Project. VP Ron Splan was the
Project Coordinator and called upon retirees for help. They showed
up to work on the very first day (demo-day). Cut our work time in
half that day with their help. The project took a full two weeks.
The only work on the ceiling not done by our people, was the AC/Heat
ducts. I think you will agreed - it's beautiful.
We have a few more projects in mind and will let everyone know what they
are and when and if we need help.
Thanks again to all that came to this year's Annual Picnic. We
hope to see you at our monthly meetings also. Mark your calendar
for the 4th Thursday of the month (except Nov and Dec due to holidays).

Notice regarding Legal Service Plan Benefit:
As you know, the UAW negotiated a new
Legal Service Plan Benefit in the last round of negotiations with FCS,
Ford and GM. The benefits provided by the Legal Services Plan are
fringe benefits that are taxable under the IRS Code. The Plan will
be sending out a 1099 form to the over 600,000 UAW members and OPEIU
members that are eligible to receive the benefit. These members will
have to include $17.30 on their Federal income return which will result
in a minimal tax of $1.73 to $6.85.
This notice is a heads-up to watch for your 1099 form that will be
mailed out soon to all eligible members of the Plan. It will be
accompanied by a Question & Answer insert that explains the Plan.

This is done under intensive supervision of the Veterans Court team.
