Sisters and Brothers at UAW Local 774,

We been out of work since March 20th and we've all experienced some sort of discomfort during that time. Anxiety has been extremely high with the element of the unknown. This virus has taken some of our family, friends away from us. I speak from experience. If any member has experienced death in there family or sickness currently, I pray for comfort and healing.

As we return to work tomorrow please use precautions that are in place and anyone experiencing displeasure please don't hesitate to contact myself or any member of your Executive Board, Chairman Michael Grimmer and your Shop Committee, EAP Rep, Benefit Rep, or Chaplain. We are all concerned about returning to work so let's try to get through this startup as safe and smooth as possible.

The Union Hall will be open, but you have to enter with mask on and we will continue to practice social distancing.

In Solidarity,
Jr Baker
UAW Local 774 President

Brothers and Sisters,

For all of our members that are returning to work Monday; Do not say that you have returned to work when you certify for unemployment benefits this week. This may just cause problems with claim and could delay payment.
