September 2022

Happy fall and cooler weather to all my fellow Michiganders and brothers and sisters of UAW.  Hopefully you had a wonderful summer and are ready for the back to school, work, etc.…. grind that fall brings to us.  For us at UAW Local 4911 this also brings an exciting but stressful time as the Union and Sparrow Hospital are going into contract negotiations.  After such an unpredictable and unprecedented time going through Covid the last 2 ½ years, working in probably the most stressful and strenuous times on the job I’ve ever had as a working adult, I am hopeful that a greater time is upon us.  I know a lot of members felt unappreciated, undervalued, overworked and underpaid throughout this time and I truly understand your pain.  Our goal going into this year’s negotiations is to make sure all of us are working in a healthy and safe environment with adequate staff to support us, wages that represent the great job we do 24/7 365 days a year, and affordable insurance, so if something was to happen to one of us,  we would be able to heal without the stress of wondering if our family would be taken care of, and if our jobs will be there upon returning.  All of these factors come into play heading into negotiations between Sparrow and the bargaining team of your peers. I have your back, and understand your needs to continue to be a productive Sparrow employee and feel valued, appreciated, and compensated for a hard day’s work!  Throughout our bargaining we will keep our members updated on the progress we are making and try to be as transparent as possible until we reach a unified agreement.  Stay tuned and Go Green, Go White! 
In Solidarity,
