Letter to Members - January 31, 2014

Members of Local 848,

It is disheartening to report that the NLRB did not rule in our favor with UAW’s charges against the company. We are currently preparing for our arbitration which is scheduled at a later date. UAW members need to keep the faith and trust in what the UAW stands for! We may have lost a battle but we have not lost the war.

In Solidarity,
Your Negotiating Committee
