NEW LEGAL SERVICES PLAN TO BEGIN OPENING CASES

The new Legal Services Plan is called the UAW-FCA-Ford-General Motors Legal Services Plan (“Plan”).

Effective Wednesday, January 25, 2017 the Plan will begin taking new cases.

A new case can be opened by calling this toll-free number: 800-482-7700.

Eligible participants in the Plan will include active and retired UAW-represented employees at FCA, Ford and General Motors and their surviving spouses.

What legal services or matters will be covered by the Plan?
The Plan will offer an “office work” benefit, which will provide services for the following types of legal matters:

• wills and trusts
• purchase or sale and other uncontested issues regarding residential real property
• uncontested family matters
• contracts for goods or services
• birth or marriage certificates
• powers of attorney
• deeds
• credit reporting
• residential leases
• name changes

“Office work” services will include advice, document preparation, document review, factual and legal research, and correspondence. No representation will be provided by the Plan in court or in any litigation situation.

In addition to office work services, the Plan does provide UAW members and retirees with full representation, including attendance at hearings, for Social Security disability applications, suspensions and terminations.

For many legal matters that are not covered under the new Plan, or that require court activity, the Plan intake staff can still process a participant’s inquiries. Such matters will be referred to outside private cooperating attorneys, who will provide legal services to Plan participants at a reduced legal rate.

On the 7th anniversary of President Obama signing the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, here are some statistics we should all be concerned about and take notice of:

Under Indiana Governor Mike Pence's leadership and the "Right to Work is Wrong" (RTWIW) legislation jammed through the Indiana State Legislature by members of his party, Hoosiers make $.86 for every American dollar, dropping Indiana to 39th in per capita income. And according to a study by the American Association of University Women, Hoosier women make $.73 cents for every dollar men make working comparable jobs, ranking Indiana 46th in the nation and below the national average of 77 cents. (We can take great pride that our Collective Bargaining Agreements require equal pay in Union represented work sites, another reason why RTWIW.)

Right To Work Opposition Rally in Columbus,Ohio on Friday, August 21.

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.
