In the last few weeks, COVID-19 has impacted our Union and community at the highest level at any time during the pandemic.

It is imperative that we all use every means available to protect ourselves, our families, and our community. This horrible disease has recently taken the lives of numerous members from their families and our Union.

To provide support through this very difficult time, UAW Local 249 has made its ESSP counselors and Chaplaincy Committee available to render aid and assistance to our brothers and sisters in need.

These UAW representatives will be available beginning January 10th through January 14th from 9 am to 9 pm daily in the salary cafeteria in the main tunnel of the plant.

Members can visit the designated location anytime during the hours available or contact their District Committeeperson or Union Hall at 816-454-6633 for any help needed to set up an appointment.

How did you purchase? Thank you.
