Greetings: We continue to follow the strategy of pattern bargaining by targeting a lead company to negotiate with. As you know the UAW continues to strike General Motors. They are completing their third week and our brothers and sisters at the UAW-GM Locals need our support now more than ever. I ask all of you to donate your time and visit the picket lines during your off-work hours. I know many of you have, but make sure to let them know that the membership of UAW-FCA thanks them for the sacrifice they are making for all of us. They will set the pattern for us to follow.
Greetings Union Brothers and Sisters: We have made significant progress in this set of negotiations since I last updated you on Wednesday, September 18, 2019. At this time, we now have 18 out of 20 subcommittees that have reached tentative agreements or have negotiated to the point that only patterned or large economic items remain open for discussion.
