If Portman and Trump had it their way, 30,000 auto-industry jobs might have never returned.

Innovation Ohio has just released a new report on the success of the auto rescue.  Its findings demonstrate that while it was characterized as a “lousy deal for Ohio” by Rob Portman at the time of its implementation, the auto bailout has in fact been a resounding success. Indeed, the auto industry is now thriving and is as integral to Ohio’s economic success as ever.

Brothers and Sisters,

Our Standing Committees have been busy so far this year and there’s still more to come! The Chaplaincy Committee honored the National Day of Prayer. The Education and Next Committees had a few orientations for our new members. The Women’s Committee held events for Relay for Life. Community Services Committee held the Annual Robert Beathe Memorial Golf Outing to raise funds for the Toys For Kids campaign to purchase food baskets for those in need and toys for area agencies during the holidays. The Civil & Human Rights Committee held their Diversity Day Celebration promoting solidarity in our diverse plant population. We want to thank everyone for supporting our Committees, without our great members we wouldn’t be nearly so successful. One thing we can say for sure of our members of UAW Local 1714, we stand together in support of each other and many community events.

 

The Conservation/Recreation Committee will hold a pulled pork sandwich sale (includes cole slaw, chips & water) for $6.00 each, Wednesday, June 29, (3rd shift Tuesday night). They are also taking orders for Celebration of the Next Generation Chevy Cruze t-shirts. These t-shirts are MADE IN THE U.S.A. by Bayside. Place your orders! The Committee is working to raise funds for our picnic, July 23, for members and their families to socialize and enjoy a fun day.

Annual Family Picnic - July 23

Our Annual Family Picnic will be held Saturday, July 23, 2016, 12:00 Noon to 5:00 p.m., at the Union Hall. Free to all members and families... we will have food, a fire truck demonstration, face painting, obstacle courses, amusement park rides and more! We look forward to seeing everyone and having a great time with all our brothers & sisters.

Contractual Language Clarification

Per our new Local Agreement, the following language applies to the 63 application process:

 TRANSFER PROCEDURE (18 – 2007) (29 – 2015)

Pursuant to Paragraph (63) of the National Agreement, employees may make application for transfer in writing to Management. Transfers will be made subject to the following conditions:

1· An employee may have five (5) applications on file at any time. If a sixth application is filed, the oldest application will be automatically cancelled, unless the employee specifies in writing which previously filed application he/she is desirous of cancelling.

2. Employees transferred under these provisions will not be eligible for further transfer for a period of ninety (90) days. The employee’s ninetieth day must be on or before the Monday prior to the transfer effective date.

3. In order to be considered for transfer, the employee must have filed an application seven (7) calendar days in advance of the opening.

4. Applications on file must be withdrawn by 10:30 P.M. on Monday. If a holiday is on Monday, an employee needs to withdraw an application on the last scheduled weekday by 10:30PM (Monday- Friday) to be invalidated in the case of transfers on the following Monday.

 

Note: Currently there is no scheduled down-time for this year.

 

Mandatory Overtime

Per a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), daily or weekend overtime during the exemption period beyond normally scheduled hours, the Paragraph 71 list will be used for scheduling such.

 

24 Hour Performance

The television crawler will continue to display the Direct Run Rate (DRR) for the prior business day. The DRR is the percentage of cars off the final line that are good and in no need of repair. Plant televisions will also display the 24 hour total units produced from the Body Shop as well as off the final line in General Assembly. This information will run on a daily basis and is important as we continue to work together to build the world class Chevy Cruze.

 

GMS Refresher Training for Team Leaders

In order to reach our goal of BIQ-4 Certification, we will begin a refresher training for Team Leaders- beginning in the Material Handling Department. If the training proves value-added, we will continue into other departments. The training will be facilitated by our Team Leader Coordinators and timing will be announced in the coming weeks.

 

 Look For the NEW Local Agreement

Our new Local Agreement is currently at the printer and

will be ready for distribution to the Membership in the coming weeks.

 

In Solidarity, we remain

Scott Brubaker, Shop Chairperson

Gary Maiorana – District #1 Steve Hill – District #2 Ryan Wagner – District #3

UAW Region 2-B has a long-standing and proud tradition of awarding scholarships each year to (11) eleven high school seniors from participating Local UAW families in Indiana and Ohio. The affiliated Local Union Presidents voted this year to raise the scholarships to twelve (12) 10,000 scholarships beginning in 2016.

The program was established to honor the memory of former Region 2-B Director and International Vice-President, Richard T. Gosser. Initially, in 1962, a single, $2000 scholarship was awarded. A foundation was established, and through contributions, the award dollar amount and number of recipients grew over the years.

As a means to keep the foundation strong and the scholarships growing even larger, Retired Regional Director, Lloyd Mahaffey, in 2004, established the first annual Richard T. Gosser Golf Outing. Local Unions, units and employers from around the state of Ohio and Indiana field teams. All proceeds go directly to the foundation and (12) twelve, $10,000 Scholarships are awarded each year.

Including the 2015-2016 winners, 320 students have received Gosser scholarships.

Region 2-B UAW Retirees also award (6) six $1000 scholarship awards to the finalists, investing in the future of an additional 107 students. In 2016, the Region 2-B Retirees are raising the (6) six scholarships to $1500.

In all the Gosser awards and the Retiree awards total over $2.2 million in scholarships awarded over the last 54 years.
