Update from UAW Vice President and Director Terry Dittes

The September 29, 2019 Union Meeting is being postponed due to the strike. All efforts are being put into strike activities.
Please watch this page for updates!

The first Strike Benefit Check distribution is Sunday, September 29th from 6:00am – 10:00pm for last names beginning with letter (A – J) and Monday, September 30th from 6:00am – 10:00pm for last names beginning with letter (K – Z). To receive your benefit check you must come to UAW Local 1853 Banquet Hall in person and present picture ID (checks will not be mailed or given to anyone other than the addressee). Future checks will be distributed on the same time and day of the week. All checks not picked up will be sent back to the International Union. All checks are written by the International Union (no checks are written at the Local level). All discrepancies will be forwarded to the International Union for resolution.

If you are coming off of medical since the strike started and need to be cleared by plant medical, they will be open Tuesday 9/24 and Wednesday 9/25 from 6:00am to 4:00pm. You must go to the visitors center to be granted access as badges have been turned off. Then you will need to report to the UAW Hall for strike assignments if you have not already. 

When you receive a COBRA letter, bring it to the UAW Hall as soon as you get it.

Counselors need to report on Wednesday and Thursday at the same times as last week! Please dress appropriately for a 4 hour strike duty and a short informational meeting concerning check distribution.
