The Retiree's picnic will be held on Tuesday, June 13, 2017 after the monthly meeting about 1 p.m. at the Union office. Pulled pork, barbeque and beverage will be provided. You are asked to bring a favorite dish to pass. There will be bingo and door prizes. If you'd like to bring a door prize, it will be most appreciated.

Healthcare Advisory Committee

During the 2016/2017 negotiations, the cost of healthcare was discussed in length. Due to the continued rise in healthcare and the cost disparities between Titan Tire facilities, the parties have agreed to form a joint advisory committee to investigate ways to better control and/or reduce healthcare costs for plan year 2018.

All members interested in volunteering for this committee, please notify the Union office before June 9. This is a negotiated committee and needs to be in place by June 17.
