 Robert Vicars
                      July 21, 1927 - July 20, 2014

UNION REUNION...2ND VERSION:  Yes, that's right, we will be holding our 2nd Annual Union Reunion at the Local 95 Union Hall (Pavilion) on Sat., July 26th.  If you served as either appointed or elected past or present, please mark your calendar to join us.  There will be refreshments served, so we would like to have you call Local 95 (608-755-5120, ext. 111)  if you plan to attend, so we may get a count which will help us with food preparation. 
   If you transferred to another plant we would sure like to see you and hear how you are doing. 
   Event:  Union Reunion, Sat., July 26th, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. at UAW Local 95 Pavilion.

 

MEMBERSHIP MEETING:  The July General Membership Meeting has been cancelled per membership action.  Take the month and enjoy a bit of the summer...BUT don't forget to return to your Union Meeting in August. 
Next meeting will be Thursday, August 21st at 6 p.m.

 

HALL RENTALS:  Just a reminder:  We have a great facility at Local 95 that we rent for wedding receptions, anniversaries, birthdays, etc.  Call for rates.  Our members get a great discount. Union members get a good discount also.  And, yes, we do rent to non-union members also.  Check us out, you won't be sorry!

 


In Remembrance Update:  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

 

Voluntary Monetary Donations:  Within the past month, Local 95 mailed a letter to ALL their Retirees asking them to consider a monetary donation to assist their Local with the upkeep of our Union Hall.  This is on a voluntary basis.  Enclosed with the letter was a card for them to fill out and return to UAW Local 95.  This card required their signature and an amount they were comfortable with as a deduction from their pension check.  We emphasized that all money donated with this card would come back to Local 95.  Some opted to write an annual check in lieu of having the deduction taken from their pension check.  That works too.
     We were humbled by the response from our great retiree membership.  Some of these individuals have been retired 20 or more years, receive a small pension...but have a large UNION heart.  They remember the gains made through their Union, and remain thankful.
     If you have received your card and have not yet filled it out and returned it, we hope you will consider doing so.  If you have misplaced your card, we have cards available at the Union Hall.  If you live a distance away, please call us at 608-755-5120, ext. 111 and we will gladly mail a card to your home.  If you did not receive the letter and card, we may have a bad address for you, so please contact us and we will be happy to check and update your contact information.
     We again would like to express our great appreciation to our Retired Worker's Chapter of Local 95.  They truly understand the word..."SOLIDARITY".
