Good news and fun for all, we are planning an open house to celebrate 35 years at the Visteon Saline Plant, as well as the 60th anniversary in existence of the UAW. The celebration will take place on Sunday, October 21, at the Saline Plant from 11:00am until 5:00pm. An invitation is extended to all active and retired employees, and their families.


The Cost-of-Living Allowance for most eligible parent Company UAW hourly employees will increase $0.17, on September 3, 2001.  The total cost-of-living received in your paycheck will be one dollar and forty cents ($1.40) per hour. 

3% General Wage Increase

Effective September 17, 2001, each eligible employee covered by the 1999 UAW Collective

Bargaining Agreement will receive a three percent (3%) general wage increase, pursuant to
Article IX, Section 2.

The amount of such wage increase for each individual worker will be determined by the straight -time hourly wage rate of the employee's classification.

UAW-Ford 60th Anniversary Commemorative History

In celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the first Collective Bargaining Agreement between the UAW and Ford Motor Company – June 20, 1941 – we have completed a commemorative history of our relationship.  This 104-page document dramatically traces our roots and focuses

on our future and will be distributed with this flyer.  If you have not received one of these books, they will be available for you to pick up in the Union Office.
