Greetings Sisters and Brothers;
Hope everyone is in good health, for yourself and your loved ones.
We lost a sister, Diana Valenta – she was a strong, beautiful, vocal activist. After her years at Fisher Body, Diana eagerly joined the Retiree Chapter and kept on going with her activism and continued to volunteer where she was needed. You are greatly missed, Sister Diana.
We have just returned from the Bargaining Convention recently that was held in Detroit, and what an awesome team we have on our side, representing us. There are many changes in the International UAW, but we all agreed to work together in solidarity and respect to achieve our goals in negotiations with the Big 3.
Reminder that 602 Retirees meet the 1st Monday of the month for Bingo at 6pm and the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 12pm for lunch (provided, call the hall at 517.372.4626 so we get a good head count). Please come and join us.
There will be an election in May for our 602 Executive Board, please see the notice in this edition. It is all our duty to vote.
Take care of yourself, and your loved ones. I hope to see you soon. Remember, be kind to one another. We never know when the last time we see someone will be.
Love, Peace, and Justice
