During the December General Membership Meeting, a few things were discussed. The first being attendance by the Union Council. We do understand the many changes recently and at this time feel we have a safe way to continue meeting, virtually, and continuing to receive the information to better represent the membership. Starting January of 2021, the absentee committee will oversee the absences of council going forward and follow all the rules per the UAW Local 571 By-Laws, Article IX, sect. 11. So, it is important to make yourselves available for the meetings and continue to communicate any issues with the absentee committee. Standing Committee Chairs are part of the structure of the council and are required to attend all monthly meetings, however, Standing Committee Chairs are not an elective position and attendance for such chair will be taken but with no adverse consequence. A new 12 month running attendance starts on January 11, 2021.

Gamble With images of an insurrection at our nation’s Capitol this month, we all are experiencing a nation divided like none of us has ever seen. We are divided by politics. By opinions. By economics. By beliefs. The cause? Well, that is up for debate. What isn’t up for debate is that this is a time to look to — and take heart in — the words of President John F. Kennedy and heed the warning of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. that healing our nation starts with us. Each of us must personally seek to find what unites us and foster that, bond with it, build upon it, so that we can move forward to a better place for us all.

Take Action

Take five minutes to make a difference today - email your US Senator today and ask them to support the HEROES Act (Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions)!

The HEROES Act would retain critical provisions, such as:
  • Creating a strong, enforceable temporary OSHA standard to working people in all sectors of our economy. The Senate must ensure that workers feel safe at work; it will slow the spread of the virus, and support a sustained, safe re-start of the economy.
