Local 724 President Todd Collins
Updated On: Nov 30, 2020

December 2020

To all our UAW 724 Members.  As you are reading this article, we are all experiencing the effects of a second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak. All of our Units have been affected in both our work and home lives. Hopefully with the elections behind us and a new president elected we can begin working to help each other and our country to get thru this pandemic. The systemic divide that this election cycle has exposed in our country is a major issue. Our inept ability to have rational, respectful conversation with each other will, I fear, cause an even deeper divide between not only our friends, our co-workers but our families as well. The basic principle of our Union is to come together as One. One common goal. And to look out for one another. We may have differences and disagreements.  In my mind those differences and disagreements can, and should, be discussed in a respectful way so that we can all come to an understanding of each other’s point of views. With the Holidays upon us I hope that we can all Safely navigate how to spend time with our Family! On the Local front recently our Kirchhoff Unit ratified a new CBA. Congratulations to the Bargaining Committee for bringing the members an agreement that, considering the circumstances, was difficult at best. Our Dakkota Unit is currently in the beginning stages of negotiating an agreement with the company. I have faith that the Bargaining Committee will be able to bring a contract to the members that they can be proud of. My wish for the New Year is that we can look forward to a safe and healthy 2021 that brings us all peace and prosperity. From my Family to yours I wish you all a Happy Holiday Season and the hope and promise of a better New Year.

Solidarity Brothers and Sisters!!
