In Remembrance Update:  Each month at our General Membership Meeting we read the names of Local 95 members who have passed away.  We ring the bell to honor them as a friend and a family member of our Local.  We have been asked many times to share these names on our website, and are in the process of setting this up.  In the mean time, we are attaching the names of those we have reported out at this year's monthly meetings.
(Please note that our reporting month in many cases are months after their actual date of death.  We rely and get our information from our local newspaper and GM's death notifications furnished to us each month.)    Click the following link:    Remembrance

*************

WE HAVE 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.

 

HALL RENTALS:  We want to remind everyone...we still have dates available for 2017 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.
