UAW Local 1050 Health & Safety Committee Update

Brothers and Sisters,

            First of all the Safety Committee would like to thank the membership for all their support.  I would also like to thank all current and new members of the committee, for all the work they do. With less than 6 months remaining on our contract, please remember to stay focused on the task at hand. Whenever you’re here, Safety should always come first. Watch out for your Brothers and Sisters, especially all of our new members.

            We would like to remind everyone that whenever an issue arises, or you’re unsure, STOP and get help. Contact your supervisor, safety rep or union steward! Ask for Safe Work Instructions, the Job Safety Analysis, or Pronotes. The last thing we want is for anyone to be injured or have an accident. The parts and equipment we deal with on a daily basis are unforgiving. We have seen too many times how bad things can happen in a blink of an eye. During investigations we constantly here the company preach to us about Human Performance. We must practice what they are preaching. So, if you are in a situation where you feel unsafe or unsure about the task your about to perform; STOP and get help.

            If you have safety concerns and need a member of the UAW Health & Safety Committee do not hesitate to get a hold of us. We have safety reps located in each business. Below is a list of UAW Safety reps by business and shift.
