On December 15, 2016 UAW President, Dennis Williams, announced that the UAW had finalized documents with GM, Ford and FCA to establish a new Legal Services Plan. He stated that the benefits covered would include a variety of “office” legal services as outlined in the bargaining agreements including wills, deeds, powers of attorney, real estate and advice on uncontested divorces and family matters. In addition low cost referrals will be provided on some other types of cases such as bankruptcy, probate and litigation matters. He indicated that the new Legal Services Plan was expected to begin operations in January 2017. See his statement here.. The old Legal Services Plan (which has not been able to open new cases since January 1, 2014) is continuing to work to conclude those cases that remain open. The new Legal Services Plan will have a new name and different benefits.
