Corvair Lady

Calling All Former Corvair Workers

I want to thank all the members of the UAW who took the time to go vote last week.
Our union has faced many challenges over the past several years and we will face many more in the future and voting is the surest way to change the environment in our states and nation.  The stark fact that so many others stayed home and did not vote is a reflection that too many Americans are being left out of an economy that promotes the success of a few, while leaving the rest of us behind.
While the Republicans now have gained control of the U.S. Senate and House they also have gained responsibility for representing all Americans, not just the wealthiest among us, but also those who spoke through their silence last Tuesday. If not, they misread the Election returns and will pay a price in 2016 as the loudest voice this election was the silence of many frustrated voters who stayed home.
For those of you who volunteered, did GOTV, knocked on doors, dropped leaflets and did tireless work a special thank you and please don't be discouraged. For every valley there is a mountaintop. See you there in 2016!

In solidarity,

Dennis Williams
UAW President



We want all our members to pass along their favorite recipes. We are putting together a Local 735 Retiree cookbook, and Donna Hogue is in charge of gathering the recipes and putting the cook book together. We know there are a bunch of great cooks out there, you have all those family recipes, and we have a bunch of men who like to cook, bake or barbeque, so lets share with all our sisters and brothers and let them enjoy what we have enjoyed for years.
You can give your recipes to anyone on the Executive Board and we will make sure Donna gets them. Thank you Donna for taking this assignment on.
