     UAW Local 1050 Update


    Brothers and Sisters,


    We hope you all enjoyed the meal for our celebration of UAW Local 1050’s 75th yr. Everyone seemed to be happy with it. If you were unable to attend it, you can still collect your commemorative cup and decal at our Union hall. Our secretary is there on Monday’s and Thursday’s from 8am to 4 pm. You must show your work badge or photo id to collect the items.

    Within the coming weeks you will be seeing surveys coming out so we can get all of your input on what are the important issues for the upcoming contract negotiations. We encourage everyone to save up a little and not make any big purchases. We hope to get a fair and equatable contract for everyone. But we also need to be prepared to do whatever it takes to achieve this.

    Since May we have brought on 35 new hires and there are still more coming. Please watch out for our new members and help keep them safe as they learn their new positions. More members is always a good thing.

    We will start up our regular mothly membership meetings in September. We encourage members to attend to hear any updates we may have and to ask any questions you may have.


    In Solidarity,

    James “Gappy” Burney

    UAW Local 1050 President
