UAW Bowling Championships Feature Tough Competition, Family Fun

Bowling is serious business for many UAW members. You could tell by the concentration, determination, frustration and exhilaration on the bowlers’ faces as they competed in the UAW International Bowling Tournament...

Statement from UAW President Dennis Williams on Charlottesville

“The events in Charlottesville this weekend will long serve as a reminder that time has a way of washing away the tears of the past where hate bullied many Americans both in society and in the workplace through intolerance.

“The UAW condemns the hate and intolerance of the alt-right groups that led to such violence in Charlottesville. Every woman and every man is equal in their civil and workplace rights regardless of race, gender, religion or sexual orientation in society and in the workplace. We cannot take our freedom for granted, and we cannot forget the lessons that history forged through the sacrifice of many brave Americans in our military, in labor and in our civil rights struggles to secure those freedoms.”

Let’s Have a Trade Agreement that Benefits Working Families

Independent presidential candidate Ross Perot in 1992 predicted there would be a “giant sucking sound” of jobs leaving the United States if the then-proposed North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was approved...

GOP Budget Cuts Only Benefit the Wealthy, Corporations

In today’s hyper-partisan political environment and 24- hour news cycle, avoiding distraction and keeping track of the decisions our elected leaders make can be next to impossible. The actions of Congress and the president impact the safety of our work environments, our wages, affordability of our health care, access to job training, quality of our children’s education, and so much more. It is for these reasons that we must make sure our voices are heard by our leaders...

DETROIT, MICH. – The UAW International Executive Board (IEB) on Tuesday passed a resolution calling for the release of unjustly charged and imprisoned trade unionists in South Korea, including President Han Sang-gyun of the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU) and KCTU General Secretary, Lee Young-joo. Specifically, the resolution calls on the Government of the Republic of Korea to “rescind all sentences and drop all charges against trade unionists that are related to peaceful protest, including those against President Han and General Secretary Lee...” Read more >>>

The 2016 elections are over; and, as you know, Mr. Trump and the Republicans now control the U.S. House, U.S. Senate, Supreme Court, and the White House. As a group they have wasted little time in trying to change health care, trade, immigration, and Social Security.

You, as UAW retirees, have fought long and hard for the benefits many working families currently enjoy. But these items, along with many others, are under attack. The UAW continues to lobby and fight, through the court system, to protect these issues along with collective bargaining rights, rights to organize and the right to peacefully assemble so our voices can be heard...

UAW President: My Union Suffered Some Setbacks, Here's What We're Doing About Them

 The UAW has a proud history in the south with more than 55,000 active members and 60,000 retirees. Last year alone more than 1,323 workers in the south voted to join the UAW, including Volkswagen workers in Tennessee who came back after a defeat in 2014 and voted to join us. The reason for their support is clear: the UAW delivers for our members.

 A New Trade Deal Needs a New Focus

In 1979, Ronald Reagan announced his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination and in his speech he called for a “North American accord” which he said will produce “a North American continent in which the goods and people of the three countries will cross boundaries more freely.” It would take more than a decade for Reagan’s idea to come to fruition, but after Congress passed the Trade and Tariff Act of 1984 giving the president “fast-track” authority to negotiate free trade, Reagan could pursue his vision. Reagan passed the baton to President George H.W. Bush who continued negotiations with Mexico and Canada for a trade deal...

Statement from UAW President Dennis Williams on Nissan Vote

 “The courageous workers of Nissan, who fought tirelessly for union representation alongside community and civil-rights leaders, should be proud of their efforts to be represented by the UAW. The result of the election was a setback for these workers, the UAW and working Americans everywhere, but in no way should it be considered a defeat.

“Perhaps recognizing they couldn’t keep their workers from joining our union based on the facts, Nissan and its anti-worker allies ran a vicious campaign against its own workforce that was comprised of intense scare tactics, misinformation and intimidation.

“American workers need champions more than ever. The workers of Nissan deserve to have the job security, safe working conditions and collective bargaining power that come only from belonging to a union. The UAW will continue to be on the frontlines of that fight for all workers.”

Sub Council Report Read more >>>

Coverage of the Land Fill Free announcement last week. Read more >>>

Chairmen Mike Branch, President Gordie Fletcher and District Shop Jeramy Huber are attending Sub Council in Detroit. They have been informed the membership should be made aware that the legal services benefit will end NEXT year, not this year. Any new business that is initiated in 2013 will be carried over until it is finalized, but this service will not be available in 2014. All members are encouraged to use the service while it exists. Please have your will or other transactions in process before December of 2013.

Additionally, members will see, within the next few pay checks, an imputed income for legal services of $81.47. This is not a deduction. It is the total cost of our legal service benefit and will be taxed as income. That is NOT the amount of the tax.

An imputed income of $81.47 at a tax rate of 28% will equal about $23 deduction.

So, the amount of tax that the average member will pay is $23.

This is the same deduction that happens every year of the agreement that we have legal services. Please understand that you will not have $81.47 deducted from your pay. That is the amount that will be taxed at your current rate of tax.

The GMCH Lockport Site has been in the process of seperating from the Delphi (former bld. 6) facility. You will see many changes happening in the near future. One change that is in effect right now is the phone system.

The system was Delphi's and we now have a new system. That means the plant main number has changed. If you are trying to contact the site please dial 716-439-5656.

This also means that when you call out from the site the caller ID will no longer say Delphi. This is an effort to further the distinction between the two companies and assure people that we are no longer a Delphi plant. We have been GMCH since 2009.

Below are a list of definitions of the abreviations on your pay stubs.

Local 686 Retirees Meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 5, 2013 at 2:00 p.m., 524 Walnut Street, Lockport.   Our guests will be from the Legal Services Department.

V-CAP is the UAW’s political action fund made up of voluntary contributions from UAW members, retirees and their families. The money is used to support pro-worker political candidates who have earned the endorsement of the UAW Community Action Program (CAP).
