New UAW Legal Services Plan to Begin Opening Cases
The UAW-FCA-Ford-General Motors Legal Services Plan that was negotiated in 2015 contracts will begin taking cases on Wednesday, Jan. 25.
“I am pleased to announce that UAW members will be able to participate in this benefit starting next Wednesday, and I would like to commend vice presidents Jimmy Settles, Cindy Estrada and Norwood Jewell, and our national negotiating teams for the hard work at the bargaining table to bring the Legal Services Plan back,” said UAW President Dennis Williams.
The Legal Services Plan will offer a variety of office legal services such as wills and trusts, deeds, birth and marriage certificates, powers of attorney, uncontested family matters, contracts for goods and services, name changes, credit reporting, residential leases, purchase or sale and other uncontested issues regarding residential real estate property.
The services are available to all eligible active members, retirees and surviving spouses.
