Statement on Big 3 Legal Services Plan from UAW President Dennis Williams
“I am pleased to announce that the UAW has finalized the documents with GM, Ford and FCA that establish the new Legal Services Plan that was bargained during the most recent round of negotiations with the Big 3. Benefits covered under this plan will include a variety of office legal services as outlined in the collective bargaining agreements and are available to all eligible active members, retirees and surviving spouses.
I would like to commend Vice Presidents Settles, Vice President Estrada and Vice President Jewell along with their respective national negotiating teams on their hard work at the bargaining table on behalf of our well deserving members.
The Legal Services Plan is expected to begin operations as early as January of 2017. The specific dates and details of the plan will be communicated as the implementation begins.”
