Our monthly meeting for July was well attended. If you were not there, you were missed. We had a great presentation on Heart Health by Dr. Bryon Williams from Emory Hospital that really enlighten us on many issues concerning our heart. It was very inspirational to know the advances they are making on treating heart conditions. He gave us many ideas on staying healthy eating right and staying active. Your Executive Board is exploring ideas of how to get more of our retirees involved in our Chapter and growing the UAW. If we are going to win the fights for future generations, we have to act now. We have a story to tell and its our own story of what a difference the UAW made in our own lives, how we provided for our families, how we were able to buy a home, educate our children, and have a decent life. That story in many cases goes untold, and its a story that must be told if nothing else to set the record straight on how a Union Contract makes a difference in the lives of those who have had one. Corporate America and Politicians are betting you won't tell it, so they tell it for us and they say how Unions have destroyed jobs . They don't mention the fact that Unions (UAW)members have saved the Automobile Industry several times in the past 40 years. They tell the story about corruption in the Unions but they want tell the story that there are 100 to 1 CEO'S, Bankers and Wall Street Executives in Jail for crimes than Union Leaders. So can we depend on you to talk to your neighbors and friends about how important that Union Contract is to workers? You my Sisters and Brothers have much more power than you know in turning this country around, just as our past Members did in the 1930'S.Do you want a bright further for our children and grand children and their children? If so, tell your story! When I joined the UAW Walter Reuther was the President and I have seen Woodcock, Frazier, Bieber, Yokich, Gettlefinger, King and now Dennis Williams, which have all been great Leaders but they would have been able to do nothing if it was not for each one of you.

In Solidarity,

Jimmy Hyde

These vehicles are made in the United States or Canada by members of the UAW and Canadian Auto Workers (CAW).  Because of the integration of United States and Canadian vehicle production, all the vehicles listed that are made in Canada include significant UAW made content and support the jobs of UAW members.

When purchasing one of these models, check the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). A VIN beginning with "1" or "4" or "5" identifies a U.S. made vehicle; "2" identifies a Canadian-made vehicle.

Not all vehicles made in the United States or Canada are built by union represented workers. Vehicles not listed here, even if produced in the United States or Canada, are not union made.

Dear Brother and Sister Retirees,

If any of you have any changes in your life, such as a death of a spouse, change of address, remove or add a dependent, or change your healthcare plan, you must contact our healthcare provider (Hewitt) so that they can update their system.  Hewitt is the provider for our Veba Trust Fund account.  the number is 1-(866)-637-7555.  Their hours are 8:30am to 4:30pm.  You will also need to contact the GM Benefit Center so your pensions won't get messed up.  That number is 1-(800)-489-4646 (Fidelity). 

We have mentioned this at the retiree meetings numerous times, but if you are not sure who your beneficiary is please contact Fidelity and request a new beneficiary form.  Fill the form out and mail it back.  The new form will replace your old one with the correct person that you designate as the person you want to leave your life insurance to.  If you have a computer you can also update you beneficiary form online. 

The new GM Retiree website Socrates went live on May 3, 2010 with additional functionality and features not available for public viewing.  This new website allows Retirees to access enhanced benefit information, announcements, notices, exclusive GM marketplace offers/discounts, club information, GM news, and product information.

The new GM Retiree website is a secure site that is password protected.  The registration process will ask Retirees to provide the last 4 digits of their Social Security Number, Zip Code, Birth Month, and Birth Day to confirm their identity as a GM Retiree.  In addition, they will be required to provide a valid email address so they can receive Retiree E-News as well as information on local GM events and activities.

This message from Skipper Rish:

If anyone needs to verify employment, they can contact the Benefit Servie Center at 1-(800)-489-4646.  We the UAW cannot verify employment.  Please call the number and ask for Other Programs.  This will get you to employment verification.
