UAW Local 1069

July 21, 2021
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
We recently received a communication from our UAW International President, Rory L. Gamble “allowing” local unions to reconvene local meetings and events. With responses from many of our members, and a unanimous decision by the entire Executive Board, we have decided to adhere to past practice and suspend our membership meetings scheduled for July 25, 2021, and August 22, 2021. We will resume our membership meetings beginning September 26, 2021. At our September meeting, we will hold nominations for our General Election and get membership approval for the date and time of this election. Thanks to our Brothers and Sisters who provided feedback on this decision. Enjoy your upcoming vacations and what’s left of your summer.
In addition, we continue to remind our Brothers and Sisters to please DO NOT buy any work or operations that you did not perform. DO NOT work on or “job-in” to jobs or operations that require certifications that you do not possess. Most importantly, DO NOT be pressured or bullied by managers to do any of the above-mentioned responsibilities. Please immediately request union representation if any of these issues arise. You can and will jeopardize your livelihoods, and most importantly, the safety of our military men and women who fly in our aircraft.
Also, we are happy to announce that we will be hosting our “UAW Local 1069 9th Annual Golf Outing” on August 27, 2021. This event will take place at Rock Manor Golf Club at 12:00 PM (registration will begin at 10:30 AM). The cost for this event will be $130.00 per person, $520.00 for a foursome. The golf package will include 18 holes of golf (with cart), bag service, range balls before “shot-gun” start, BBQ buffet (following golf), unlimited beverage service during golf, and beverage service up to 1.5 hours after golf (during the buffet). All proceeds will go to “Operation First Response.” Please see Jason Bonacquisti, Matt Rogers, or any other member of our Communication’s Committee for further details.
Lastly, Brookhaven Optical was on-site this past Monday, July 19, 2021, meeting with employees who scheduled appointments to obtain prescription safety glasses. Due to the overwhelming demand for appointments, they will notify The Company to set up additional visit dates. For more information and to schedule a future appointment contact: Emily Myers ( or 610-392-8849) or Allen Kramer ( or 610-591-3197).

Always Stay UAW Local 1069 Strong

In Solidarity,
