​             Some good news!! 

Starting Friday morning, 8/28, the Company and a Union Rep or myself will start recalling the top 10 laid off employees for permanent recall. Do Not Call The Company. If someone can’t be reached I will search for them and a recall letter will be sent. The start date will be approximately September 21st. Wish it was everyone but with this COVID slowing parts suppliers we will be thankful for these 10 and keep asking for more. Please make sure your phone number and address is current with HR. 
                     In Solidarity.

Below is an article worth reading about the struggles of filing unemployement. Click on the link.

Staying a member in good standing


Article 16 of the UAW Constitution

Laid off members are considered to be in good standing for the first six months​.


What to do after that?


Use the address and membership update page each month thereafter.

 

It is very important for each member to regularly keep in touch with your local UAW office.


To update any address or phone number changes simply fill in the form information by locating the tab in the upper right corner of this page. 


Attend monthly membership meetings the second Saturday of each month. Unless other wise posted on this site.

Laid off members wishing

to remain in good standing.

We are trying to find out what’s needed for Hurricane Laura victims. The Company has agreed to work jointly with Local 5285 and have a box placed in the breezeway. Please stay tuned to the website uawlocal5285.com, huddles and of course the FB page. Gary Roseboro is helping to head this up while I’m on vacation the next couple of weeks. Region 8 will work with our locals to send a check as always. Our Community Action Program serves communities as always. Louisiana and Texas have recently been added to the Region 8 family!! Let’s show them our support.
