Every year, as I think about the Thanksgiving holiday, I always try to concentrate on the things that we as a union, and our sisters and brothers in solidarity everywhere, have to be thankful for. And, as always, there is much to be thankful for. But what to say about 2020?
Greetings: We continue to follow the strategy of pattern bargaining by targeting a lead company to negotiate with. As you know the UAW continues to strike General Motors. They are completing their third week and our brothers and sisters at the UAW-GM Locals need our support now more than ever. I ask all of you to donate your time and visit the picket lines during your off-work hours. I know many of you have, but make sure to let them know that the membership of UAW-FCA thanks them for the sacrifice they are making for all of us. They will set the pattern for us to follow.
Greetings Union Brothers and Sisters: We have made significant progress in this set of negotiations since I last updated you on Wednesday, September 18, 2019. At this time, we now have 18 out of 20 subcommittees that have reached tentative agreements or have negotiated to the point that only patterned or large economic items remain open for discussion.

The Community Service committee has put together a resource packet for those affected by the strike. There are many services available to those in need. 

The Local 14 Recreation and GM Powertrian Recreation committees are now accepting league funding requests for the leagues starting in 2020.  Pick up your request form in the Local 14 Union Office. Deadline to return forms is Friday, October 25, 2019.  

RE: National Strike - Day 16

Dear Union Brothers and Sisters:

Last night, Monday, September 30, 2019, GM passed a comprehensive proposal at 9:40 pm across the bargaining table.

This proposal that the Company provided to us on day 15 of the strike did not satisfy your contract demands or needs. There were many areas that came up short like health care, wages, temporary employees, skilled trades and job security to name a few.  Additionally, concessionary proposals still remain in the company's proposals as of late last night.

President Dennis Earl has published a letter to the membership regarding Stike Duty.  Please be sure to read the letter. If you have any questions regarding strike duty or pay please call the Local 14 Union Hall at 419-473-2854. 

Strike Pay checks are now available at the UAW Local 14 Hall

5411 Jackman Rd Toledo, OH 43613.  

Mr. Sandefur: I am in receipt of your email dated Wednesday, September 25, 2019, that I received this morning, Thursday, September 26, 2019 at 8:57 am. Let me recap the sequence of events regarding this very important matter for all our striking members and their families.
