Greetings Sisters and Brothers,


The UAW International Executive Board has reviewed the situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and because the danger of infection is still high, we ask that you cancel all International Area Council (IAC) retiree membership meetings for the month of May 2020.


International Area Council Drop-in Centers located in states with stay-at-home orders, should comply with those orders and discontinue the scheduling of counselors to manage the telephones. Services at the Drop-in Centers may resume when the stay-at-home orders are lifted.


With great caution and concern, we encourage everyone to follow the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV):
• Shelter at home
• Stay at least 6 feet in between yourself and others, if you must be out
• Wash your hands regularly


In solidarity,
Rory L. Gamble, President
International Union, UAW
