Forming a Retired Worker Chapter

Periodically a local union discovers they have enough interest among retirees to form a Retired Worker Chapter.

Once a group of retirees has been convened and determines they want to go forward, use the attached form to apply to the UAW Secretary-Treasurer's Office for an Official Retired Worker Chapter Charter.

The group can elect officers either prior to, or after, Charter application. Article 55, Section 1 of the UAW Constitution governs Retired Worker Chapters. The Local Union leadership and the prospective Chapter should work together closely, using the Regional Retired Worker Rep. as a resource to get the Chapter off the ground.  Call the Regional office at 419.893.4677 for assistance.
