JANUARY UPDATE:  In Remembrance:  Each month at our General Membership Meeting we read the names of Local 95 members who have passed away.  We ring the bell to honor them as a friend and a family member of our Local.  We have been asked many times to share these names on our website, and are in the process of setting this up.  In the mean time, we are attaching the names of those we have reported out at this year's monthly meetings.

(Please note that our reporting month in many cases are months after their actual date of death.  We rely and get our information from our local newspaper and GM's death notifications furnished to us each month.)  IN REMEMBRANCE

STILL  -  NO Ticks with UAW:  The Janesville-Madison Women's Committee are still selling "The Tick Key", the easiest-to-use Tick Removal Devise on EARTH!  The Tick Key easily attaches to your key chains or pet collars and come in 7 different colors.  They are made of high-strength anodized aluminum, which is durable and easy to keep clean with alcohol.

I am sure I am not the only one that drives by our GM Plant in Janesville and actually misses the traffic jams at shift change, parking lots full and overflowing with cars and trucks, and people bustling to get into the Plant and to work on time.  We have amongst us a member who puts his thoughts to poem.  We requested and he graciously gave us permission to print of one his works.  "The Plant Is Now Empty"  

We included with his poem an illustration by our own Bill Fitzsimmons, which he did at the time of our GM Plant closing for our Local 95 Union News.  

Our thanks to both William Wallace and Bill Fitzsimmons.
