Brothers and Sisters,

   I’ve been informed by Keith Harbin, UAW Benefits Rep, that the reason the “cost shares” didn’t come out of our checks is the maximum for 2018 has been reached. This was actually the 53rd pay period. Just wanted to get the info out to the membership. A possible double deduction MAY happen in 2019. Happy New Year and I hope everyone is enjoying their negotiated paid time off.
