Just a note to congratulate you on your recent retirement from the
State of Michigan, and to thank you for your commitment and
devotion to the UAW!
Being a UAW member is for a lifetime and your membership in the
UAW does not end with retirement.
Now that you have retired some of the challenges, interests and issues
we faced while employed still remain the same. However, some issues
are different due to the threats against our pensions, social security
benefits, health care, and other social issues that may hinder our
well-being. The UAW has stood against all adversaries that threaten
its members, their families and communities, and will continue to do so.
Your fellow retirees encourage you to stay active with YOUR UAW
Local 6000, by attending retired workers chapter meetings, social
activities, and retreats for UAW Local 6000 retirees at the Local,
Regional and Statewide levels.
There are two (2) retiree chapters for our retired members of UAW
Local 6000. We have a Statewide Retired Workers Chapter and
Region 1A Retired Workers Chapter; the Statewide meets in Lansing
and Region 1A meets in Taylor. A copy of the Chapter Officers and
meeting dates are posted on this website. Please take a few minutes
to look us up on the Local 6000 Webpage (www.uawlocal6000.org).
We are also looking into establishing a social media page for our
retirees to communicate with us and each other. Feel free to give
us your issues and concerns. We exist to help “U”! So please think
about joining us and becoming active with us. We are only as strong
as our voices and members.
Remember fellow retirees to stay informed, involved, active and
encouraged in your lives, and with the UAW. “U” R the Union!
Yours in Solidarity,
Bob Sisler, Chairperson, Chairperson Region 1A Retired Workers Chapter
Otis Florence-Butler, Chairperson Statewide Retired Workers Chapter
