TORNADO DAMAGE AT THE REGION 4 PAT GREATHOUSE CENTER - OTTAWA IL (Feb. 28th)
Statement released by Region 4:
It is with great sadness that we share some terrible news regarding the Pat Greathouse Center. 
Earlier this evening a tornado went through the Ottawa area. We are happy to report that no one was injured, however the Pat Greathouse Center has sustained heavy damage. The house and hotel were hardest hit. Many of the trees have been destroyed. We are already working with all available agencies to assess the damage and to move forward. 
Please keep the residents in the area of the Center in your thoughts and prayers. 
Ron and Dutch

On behalf of Local 95 Officers, Staff and Membership...Our thoughts and prayers are with ALL those affected by the severe weather yesterday across the Region.  We have been in contact with Region 4 and they know we will be there for anything we can to assist or help with.  We will keep the membership updated as we hear.

                                                                    
UPDATE from Region 4 Director Ron McInroy  - (March 5th)

I would like to personally thank Dutch & Charlie for all the extra hours and leadership at the Pat Greathouse Center. In the aftermath of the tornado, they have been working tirelessly with the staff and volunteers, coordinating all the processes with contractors, insurance agents, and working with the community in general.
I want to extend a big thanks to the support from our Secretary Treasurer and his staff for all their assistance during this crisis.
We have cleared paths allowing us to be able to work around the facility safely but have been told to allow the insurance crews and contractors to do what is necessary to clear and rebuild our facility, namely the hotel and center grounds area. 
My sincerest gratitude to all the volunteers and well wishes from concerned members, retirees, and friends through out the Region and UAW. We have the electricity back up as the crews did a phenomenal job having the power restored within only a few days. The Clubhouse sustained repairable damage and the contractors are working on returning us to working order allowing us to be ready for this years conferences. The hotel must be completely replaced and we are working through this process now. We lost many mature trees as I know many of you have been on websites looking at photos. 
While we suffered considerable damage, the damage sustained to so many of our Ottawa community neighbors to the west of us was much more devastating as they lost homes and irreplaceable memories. In this respect we are very blessed. We will keep you updated as often as possible, we know many would probably like to look at the progress in real time. For this we would like to have you follow on the website as the insurance and contractors need their space and this will allow the best turn around for our center.

                                                       Again on behalf of myself, Dutch and our entire staff we express our gratitude.
                                                                                                            Ron

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

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 and have opened up 2018 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.

Benefit Rep. Mike Feirn:  Mike has regular hours of 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Wednesdays at UAW Local 95.

Workers Compensation Attorney:
