2015 UAW Local 2075 Picnic



On January 15, 2015 at the regular membership meeting held at the UAW hall on Bellefontaine Avn. the Local 2075 union Leadership presented brother Greg Gebolys with a plaque naming the meeting room he is standing in as “The Greg Gebolys War Room” in recognition of his generous donations that made it possible to create this room. Greg also had made previous donations to help to install stainless steel counter tops in the kitchen. Greg is a long time UAW member who is very actively involved in our Local union as the Chairman of the Veterans Committee as well as the Chairman of the Worker To Worker Committee. Greg was one of the driving forces behind the creation of the Freedom Flag Wall and is always very committed to making sure that our Local as well as General Dynamics is well represented in the public by coordinating the use of a tank to participate in the local community parades. His commitment to our Local 2075, to General Dynamics and to the UAW is and always has been second to none. Thank you Greg.

Official UAW endorsments

It’s that time again, campaign season has begun. It is less than 40 days till Election Day and more than ever it is important to stay informed on which candidates will support workers. http://uawendorsements.org/ Follow this link to the UAW endorsement web site for a complete list of UAW endorsed candidates in your state.

Remember to vote, vote early and bring along a friend



  As many of you may or may not know the “Defense Contract Management Agency” (DCMA) has updated and changed their policy on the requirements for access to JSMC in accordance with several government Directives due to the recent shootings which have occurred on several military bases throughout the country. Because of this they, the DOA, has begun checking every person, active, laid off, delivery driver, visitor, manager and salesman to make sure they meet the new requirements for unescorted access to JSMC. We will most likely have some members who will not meet these requirements and will be told why and then be required to have an escort the entire time they are on the base. The company has already said that they will not provide daily escorts for our members and we currently do not have language that says they will. The Local union is doing everything they can to try to find ways to address this as well as contacting the International UAW legal department who are looking for avenues as well. This is a tough situation due to this being a military base and the government having broad discretion as to who is allowed access to it. We will continue to do everything we can first to help any affected members understand their rights to appeal and also how to go about filing for an appeal. If you have any questions about this process you can contact any one of the Local union reps listed in the “Local union representatives” tab on the left of this page and we will provide updates as they are needed.
