On April 21st, Pete Wheeler, who served as the Commissioner of the Georgia Department of Veterans Services, passed away. Pete served in this capacity for more than 60 years. Pete was always a staunch advocate for veterans rights, and he helped countless Georgia veterans receive their deserved benefits over the years. His leadership, and dedication of service, will be sorely missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Wheeler family at this time.
Robert Humphery Chairperson UAW Local 10 Retiree Veterans
Local 10 would like to congratulate Zane Payne on his election to rhe 2015 Labor Hall of Fame. Zane has worked extremely hard for the union and it's members throughout his distinguished career, and has served loyally in several capacities. His Hall of Fame induction is richly deserved.
I am not a benefits rep, but I have received many calls from our members who are somewhat confused about our medical and vision plan. At the first of the year we got our coverage back. Many had kept their coverage through COBRA and was paying monthly premiums. Now it is up to you if you want to keep them both. But many of our Retirees don't know that they are paying for something they may not need. If you have any questions on the above we have benefits reps that are at the IBEW drop in center on Tuesdays and Thursdays every week. The phone number is (404) 688-9225. Talk it up with Retirees you know that may not have access to the internet or Facebook. Debbie is available at the UAW office Monday-Friday, (770) 457-3128.
Please help support the Letter Carriers Food Drive on Saturday May 9, 2015. Put your non-perishable donation in a bag by your mailbox. It will be picked up and delivered to the local food bank.

We had a great time today at our Local 10 Retiree’s Annual Thanksgiving and Christmas Meeting .
We had about 300 in attendance as old friends gathered for the last meeting of the year. We were joined by our Regional Director Ray Curry who gave us an extensive report about what’s going on in our Region. It was exciting to hear about the progress at our 2 new Locals in Chattanooga TN and Vance AL. Director Curry had some very nice things to say about our retirees at Local 10 and our course he was dead on.
Charlie Flemming President Of the Georgia AFL-CIO gave us a report on the Status of the Georgia Labor Movement . He talked about how the UAW ran the phone banks during the past elections although we did not win our retirees made over 200,000 calls. He said anytime there was a struggle for Workers Rights anywhere Local 10 was always there. When he gets a call for action his first call is always to Kathy Fowler at Local 10 and again and again the UAW is there. It makes me proud to know that these 2 great Labor Leaders recognize the dedication of our Local 10 Retiree’s.
Steve Raymon Chevrolet donated 10 $50.00 Gift Certificates and I had several comments about how nice it was for them to do this. Willie Monroe had Capitol Cadillac on hand and they donated 2 car Details for our raffle. If you know of any Dealers that might want to donate gifts to our retirees meetings tell them to contact me and I will get Willie Monroe to negotiate a deal with them.
Mark your calendars for next year we meet the 3rd Tuesday each month at 10:30 at the Comfort Inn and Conference Center address 2002 Clearview Ave just off Buford Highway.
Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving and a Merry Christmas.
See You in January,

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.
This message from Debbie Garcia:
If anyone needs to verify employment, they can contact the Benefit Service 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.
