Update on Reduction In Force!!


Due to the Department of Human Services and the Department of Community Health merger, the employer emailed all DHHS employees the UAW Bumping Preference Form to be filed out and submitted electronically to the employer. On the same day the form was emailed to the UAW members the employer announce a reduction-in-force.

The Union voiced their objection to the employer that the UAW members were not provided any time to submit their Bumping Preference Forms. The employer has agreed to accept any new or revised forms through midnight July 15, 2015.

If you have not submitted your Bumping Preference Form, or if you wish to amend your current form on file, please do so prior to the July 15, 2015 deadline.

The Bumping Preference Forms on file as of midnight July 15, 2015 are the forms which will be used in the calculation of potential bumps and/or layoffs during this reduction-in-force.

The Re-classification of "Non-FIS workers will not be implemented

Our current Primary Agreement expires December 31, 2015. Please complete the Bargaining Survey so you will have voice regarding the decisions your elected Primary Bargaining Team negotiates.

SSI Advocates To Be Eliminated?

Contact your State Representative and State Senator now. To reach them just go to the link at the bottom of the page will connect you when typing in your address.

The Governor and State Legislature are trying to eliminate the MDHHS SSI Advocacy Program. Their proposed budgets for fiscal year 2015-16 eliminate all eight SSI Advocate positions.

The SSI Advocacy Program is a major profit center for the State of Michigan and significantly improves the financial stability of disabled Michigan citizens.

There is no business case for eliminating a program that brings back 9 dollars for every dollar spent on it?

The SSI Advocacy Program has demonstrated high value and importance for the State of Michigan and it’s disabled citizens and should be restored as a line item in the MDHHS FY 2016 budget. This is especially true in view that the program will increase revenue for FY 2016.

Other key lawmakers to contact:

Sen. James Marleau is the MDHHS Senate Approps Chair.

Dear Sisters and Brothers of UAW Local 6000


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 (
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 Otis Florence-Butler, Chairperson

UAW Region 1A Retirees Statewide Retired Workers Chapter
