UAW Retiree Council Greetings

Greetings Sisters and Brothers,

I hope that all of you are doing well. I know that we have never experienced anything in our lifetimes that compares to what we are going through today. It seems that the world as we knew it came to a sudden halt in mid March. Our lives changed from one of enjoying a UAW retirement, with all the freedom, travel, and fellowship it provides, to one of "stay at home to survive"!

Shortly after our March 13th meeting, we decided to cancel our April, and May meetings. We were operating our drop-in center on a phone only basis and not allowing walk ins. This was all done to protect our members, and our counselors. On April, 3, 2020 UAW International President, Rory Gamble ordered drop in centers to be closed in states that have stay at home orders. We are hoping to reopen, for phone calls, real soon, so you can feel more connected with your retiree council.

I just want you to know we are in this together. We will get through this! Stay safe, listen to the medical experts, not the politicians. Encourage each other, and remain positive. The worst thing any one of us could do is relax our safety precautions, and expose our self to this terrible virus.

We can do this! We Are UAW Strong!

In Solidarity,

Ray Davis, Chairman
