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.

 

GENERAL MEMBERSHIP:  We will next meet on Thursday, May 19th at 6 p.m. at the UNION HALL. 
This meeting is for
ALL UAW Local 95 members, Active and Retired.  Our Local needs ALL it's members to run efficiently and represent our Membership. PLEASE make plans to attend your monthly membership meetings. 

 

RETIREE DAYThe Local 95 Retiree Chapter will have their monthly membership meeting the 4th Thursday this month, May 26th  10 a.m. until 4 p.m.  Join us for our first meeting of 2016, with great friends and wonderful door prizes.  Bring your own table service and a dish to pass.
