ADDRESSES & PHONE NUMBERS NEEDED: It is very important that you
keep your records up to date in order to protect your job and to receive
important notifications from the union. That aside, each time the local does a
mailing, we have stacks of mail returned for bad addresses, which costs the
local union money because they have to be investigated and re-mailed, if
possible. If you’ve moved and/or your
phone number has changed, please email your name and updated contact information
to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (440) 934-3151 x0. Visit your plant human
resources department to update your contact information there, too. Please note: Retiree
addresses are no longer updated to the local, so if you are a retiree that has
moved or know a retiree that has moved, please be sure to have him/her contact
the local to update their information.

printing company that printed our local’s newspaper closed down and we are in
the process of searching for another printer. We will resume distribution as
soon as one is found.
Retiree Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners and
all retiree meetings are canceled until further notice, due to Covid-19. We look
forward to a time when we will finally be able to resume normal activities when
we have the virus behind us.
GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETINGS: Due to social
distancing concerns related to Covid-19, all UAW Local 2000 meetings are
canceled until further notice. Members will be given advance notice of the next
meeting. The Executive Board is still meeting regularly to handle business.
and yours a Happy Thanksgiving holiday!
