BEEN ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT UAW/GM LEGAL SERVICES:
Here is what we have at this time to report to our membership regarding
the Legal Services:
A new Legal Services Plan was negotiated under the recent UAW-GM,
UAW-Ford and UAW-FCA contracts. The new Plan will be a
multi-employer Plan and UAW represented members of GM, Ford and GCA will
be eligible to participate in the Plan. Since it will be a new
Plan, a Trust must be created, regulatory papers must be filed with the
IRS and other steps must be taken before new cases can be opened or
previous cases reopened.
It is hoped that these steps can be completed within the next
several months. Once opened, the new Plan will be able to complete
"office legal work" such as the preparation of wills, power of
attorneys, prenuptial agreements, real estate documents, as well as
handle other uncontested family matters and provide advice and draft
letters for many types of personal legal problems including credit
reporting, probate matters, consumer matters and real estate matters.
If something cannot be handled by the "office work benefit", then the
new Plan will be able to provide members with a low cost referral to a
private attorney who has signed a contract with the new Plan to provide
services to eligible UAW members at a substantially reduced rate.
When the start-up date becomes known all local Unions and Retiree
Chapters will be provided with specific notice.
We want to remind everyone...we still
have dates available for 2017 and have opened up 2018 for the
rental of our Union Hall. We have "special rates" for our UAW
members and "Other Union" members and a very reasonable rate for those
not union affiliated.
