Local 4911 President Muhammad Qawwee
Updated On: Dec 15, 2022

December 2022

Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year to all my brothers and sisters with UAW Local 4911!  Hopefully everyone has plans for the upcoming holidays to do something worthwhile with family and friends.

I am hoping by the time you receive this article, our members will have a new 3 year bargaining agreement. For the last three and a half months our bargaining team has been burning the midnight oil, meeting multiple times with Sparrow’s management to come to a pretty good tentative agreement that benefits the majority of our members.  We have fought hard to expand coverages in policies like bereavement, violence in the workplace, and harassment just to name a few.  Of course we were able to get pretty good wage progression increases throughout each year of the contract.  We were able to bargain for no increase in insurance premiums and LOWER premiums for the last two years of the contract also.  We maintained all of our current monetary articles in the contract and really didn’t have to give up anything. 

I would personally like to thank every single member of the current bargaining team for their unwavering dedication and for their hard work getting a tentative agreement to bring forward to our members.  Please, if you see any one of them, give them a pat on the back or a handshake for putting in the hard and long hours (sometimes sacrificing family time) to reach this agreement. 

Finally I want to thank all the members of UAW local 4911 that took time out to come to one of the many informational meetings we held regarding the tentative agreement.  We are only as strong as our members and we encourage everyone to get involved and come find out how we all have been working to serve you.  Happy Holidays! 

In Solidarity, Muhammad
