 The Caterpillar UAW bargaining team has reached a tentative agreement.

No details will be publicly released until Caterpillar UAW members have had a chance to review the agreement and highlights, and vote on the agreement.

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).
