Dear Brothers and Sisters, We would like to inform all members that there will be two financial planning seminars held at our union hall. The first one will be held on Wednesday, August 29, 2018 @12:00 PM and 3:00 PM and the second one will be on Wednesday, September 19, 2018 @ 12:30 PM and 3:00 PM. Our August 29th sessions will be held by Lyndsey M. Berry, Financial Advisor with Ameriprise Financial Group. She will discuss topics regarding your workplace retirement benefits and how they can help you reach your retirement goals. The September 19th sessions will be held by Chris Bryan, Financial Advisor with Union Benefits Group. He will provide helpful tips on financial goal setting, retirement income planning, and wealth management. Please plan on attending one or both of these seminars. For those who need a reminder, our Union Hall is located at:
1000 E. 4th St.
Eddystone Pa. 19022

Lately, there have been employees moving and promoting to other jobs within our factory. We remind all employees if and when you apply for jobs posted on “Careers @ Boeing” please update your resume, work history, and profile on your Careers @Boeing account to demonstrate skill and ability pertaining to the job you apply for. Also, if needed you can see your HRG representative to brush up on your interviewing skills. See one of your UAW representatives for any assistance with Careers @Boeing or other concerns regarding the hiring and promotion process.

Election time is fast approaching for all of our political allies in our tri-state area. I receive many calls and visits from these folks who are looking to get re-elected and candidates who are running for the first time seeking our assistance and endorsements. Over the years many politicians came to our aid helping to keep work and procure new work at this facility. Your leadership continues to work with our political friends to remind them to remain loyal and support the efforts of UAW Local 1069. I urge all UAW members to please consider contributing to the UAW regional sponsored V-Cap fund, which helps our politicians continue their fight in growing our membership at the Ridley Park facility. Please see one of your UAW representatives to sign up and contribute to this fund. Every little bit helps.

Reminder: Our membership meeting will resume September 23, 2018, @ 10:00 AM at our union hall.  Please plan to attend. Nominations will be held for two (2) open positions (Trustee and Sgt. At Arms). Also, I am sure there are many issues and concerns you wish to discuss.

                                                                         STAY UNITED

In Solidarity

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Many thanks go out to all members of our Veteran’s Committee, all of the folks who volunteered their time to work with our committee, and to all employees in our plant who generously donated to the “Walk for the Wounded” foundation. All of us here collectively assisted in raising an astonishing $13,234.00 for this great cause. This was all made possible through our gate collections, “hot dog” sales, additional donations, shirts and other miscellaneous items sold throughout the plant. Hats off to our Veterans Committee who put together these events to help raise this amazing amount which will be donated to our men and women who served, continue to serve, and are a part of this group.
As a reminder there will not be a membership meeting on Sunday, May 27th, 2018. This date conflicts with the Memorial Day holiday. Also, we remind our members that we voted at our previous membership meeting to suspended meetings for the remainder of the summer and resume our meetings beginning September 23rd, 2018. I know all of our members have their calendars marked in anticipation of attending, so please make note of the meeting changes. We look forward to seeing all of you at our September membership meeting.
Memorial Day or Decoration Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. The holiday, which is currently observed every year on the last Monday of May, will be held on May 28, 2018. Please enjoy your time off with family and friends and remember those gave their lives serving our country. Have a safe Memorial Day weekend.


Yours in Solidarity,

Michael A Tolassi
