December 2022

I would like to recap some of the events going on at UAW Local 602 in the past few months.

Thank you to our Citizenship & Legislative Committee for help producing the wins during this election cycle. Thanks to everyone that helped UAW endorsed candidates this year! Whether you knocked on doors, made phone calls or voted as a family, you helped our candidates get across the finish line and we won big!

Shortly after the elections, our Veterans Committee put together another wonderful event at the plant. We gave our Veterans shoes, other gifts and important information regarding their service and benefits. Thank you Veterans committee and to all who served!

Many members were able to enjoy Thanksgiving with a good meal this year as our Community Service Committee was able to provide holiday meals for families in need.

The LDT gate collection on November 3rd raised more than $8,500 for Toys for tots.

The Local 602 Women’s Committee held a “Holiday Expo” at the union hall to raise money for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. They were able to raise $2,300.

The LDT gate collection on December 1st raised $6,300 for Old Newsboys.

In the span 28 days our unbelievably generous members, and our amazing standing committees raised over $17,000. The money will help make sure kids have presents at Christmas, help to find a cure for cancer, and to make sure kids in our community have boots this winter. Thank you to everyone that donated, volunteered, or helped organize these events - Amazing job 602!

On Dec. 2nd two full trailers, and two full truckloads of toys, gifts and bicycles were loaded up from LDT GA, Body and Paint shops. They were taken to the Toys for Tots building where the toys will meet their new owners! 

We had to wait for nearly 3 years, but we finally were able to hold our UAW Local 602 Children’s Christmas party on December 4th! Thank you to the Women’s Committee, Santa AND the Grinch for helping make this event an enormous success!

Every year I am left speechless when I witness the enormous amount of generosity, kindness and caring that our membership produces for our community.

To all, I wish the gifts of love, of joy and of peace during this holiday season and always.
