February 13, 2024

Brothers and Sisters,

First, we would like to thank our local politicians, Senator Bob Casey (PA), Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon (PA), Congressman Donald Norcross (NJ) and Congresswoman Chrissy Houlahan (PA) along with dozens of other senators and congress members for all their hard work and dedication to the UAW Local 1069 membership. In the last few months, they have been working hard on securing Ridley Park with CH-47 block II long term funding. We look forward to continuing our work with our local representatives.

At Sunday’s general membership meeting nominations were held for President, Vice President, North Side Committeeman, South Side Committeeman and Member-at-Large. Elections for all positions will be held at the Hall on Tuesday, February 27, 2024. The polls will be open at 5 AM and close at 6 PM.

Due to the recent passing of the MOA, we had to rezone 13 of the 16 Shop Stewards areas. Effected zones are posted on all UAW Local 1069 boards throughout the plant. Nominations for all 13 zones will be February 14th & 15th at the Hall from 8 AM to 4 PM. Elections for Shop Stewards will be held February 21st, 22nd and 23rd. Dates and times for all zones are to be determined.

Brothers and Sisters,

As you may already know at this point, President Tom Lyons has decided to resign
from his position effective close of business Thursday January 18, 2024. We would like to thank Tom for his years of dedicated service to our Union. Tom had served as a Shop Steward, Committeeman, Shop Chairman and President. Again, thank you Tom for everything you have done for this membership.

In unprecedented times within our workplace, the Committee believes this move will best serve the overall membership. Your committee’s intention is to show full transparency and strong Leadership in an effort to protect the best interest of our membership to the best of our abilities.

Going forward our committee would like to have your support and prove to this membership that this is only the first step in the process. The goal of this committee is to protect our membership and increase the strengths of our local. This will not be a short process and will not happen overnight, however we are committed to making progress in unifying and strengthening our union as it was in the recent past.

In Solidarity,

UAW Bargaining Committee
