Notice For Strike Authorization

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
On Tuesday, August 9, 2022, we will hold a necessary “Strike Authorization” vote at the Union Hall from 5:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. We strongly recommend to ALL members to show solidarity and come vote.
Members of your Bargaining Committee will be at the hall for the duration of the voting process. We will assist you, answer questions, and address any concerns you may have regarding any matter.
We expect that our membership will demonstrate unity by showing a strong turnout and vote overwhelmingly in approval of a Strike Authorization. We want The Company to hear our message loud and clear. We deserve a favorable and fair contract that meets the needs of every member.
To become entitled to receive strike allowances such as pay and medical benefits from our UAW International, this vote must take place. In any event, if a strike is necessary, our members MUST consent to a strike to receive any strike assistance allowed from our International.
Please recognize a quality economic package is especially important to our members. Appreciate we are prepared to bargain for many additional, essential issues such as increased labor grades, work rule changes, increased retirement income, medical benefits, promotion language changes, lay-off language adjustments, cost-of-living continuance with yearly “fold-ins,” increased holidays, sick leave and vacation accrual, loan language modifications, and most importantly, that we remain a UAW Local 1069 workforce that continues to produce the finest aircraft in the world.
Please note, there was a change voted in last week by all Delegates at the UAW National Convention. The $400.00 weekly strike pay, in addition to medical benefits, will now begin on day 1 in the event we are forced to call a strike.
Lastly, we did receive well over 1200 order forms for the T-Shirts we are offering to our members. We anticipate they will arrive sometime in mid-August. We hope you will wear these USA-made shirts proudly in support of our contract negotiations.

Always Stay UAW Local 1069 Strong

Countdown to Contract: 59 Days


In Solidarity,
