WHAT A TURNOUT...
Saturday, December 7th the GM (Skillled and Non-Skilled) Maintenance
held their Annual Holiday get-together at the Union Hall. Even
with the harsh cold outside, the Hall was filled with hot food and
drink; hand shakes and pats on the back. What a wonderful group of
people gather to share old stories and get reacquainted with former
co-workers. Some have went on to different jobs and some have retired to
enjoy their time with family. Those we have lost over this past
year, were indeed missed. But, nothing could damper the mood.
It comes as no surprise to anyone who worked at GM, whether on the
line, maintenance, appointed, etc., the generosity of people who called
GM-Janesville Assembly their employer. They always gave from the
bottom of their heart. Alice Wilson and Ron Splan bartended for
the event and announced early on that all "tips" at the bar would be
donated to Salvation Army. $108.00 was collected to be donated in
the name of GM Maintenance.
This event doesn't happen without the work of some outstanding people who
shy from recognition. Those attending know who these people are because
they work throughout the event in the kitchen and on the floor.
THANKS to each and every one of them!!
With all luck we will meet again...first Saturday of December 2014.
Take care and have a Wonderful Holiday Season and a Happy and Healthy
2014. (Don't forget to mark next year's calendar for Dec. 6th.)
NOVEMBER 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

GM PLANT POEM BY
WILLIAM WALLACE: 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
Our thanks to both William Wallace and Bill Fitzsimmons.
