Retired Workers

As the persistent surge of Covid-19 cases increase throughout our country, hospitals near capacity and multiple state restrictions, we are requesting that all local union meetings and events continue to be suspended until April 15, 2021, due to these Coronavirus concerns. Local union meetings may be permitted virtually using on-line meeting programs such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams. In either case, approved local union by-laws must be followed.

We will communicate any adjustments or modifications to this policy if encouraging changes occur with the status of this pandemic.

A new procedure to request insurance carrier vendor speakers at Retired Worker Chapter meetings has been announced and is effective immediately.

The change is instituted to handle the requests by the most cost effective and geographically wise means possible, and to meet the needs of the retirees covered by the trust. Additional staff have been added to the trust to accomplish this goal.

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.
