On May 5th, 2014, UAW Secretary Treasurer Dennis Williams made an announcement at our UAW-GM Joint Health & Safety Conference that impacts current and future UAW GM retirees eligible for benefits as provided by the UAW Retiree Medical Benefits Trust (the “Trust”) that we wanted to share.

The approach of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day on April 22 provides us an opportunity to reflect on the “long, strange trip” shared by the environmental movement and the labor movement over four decades here on Spaceship Earth.

A billion people participate in Earth Day events, making it the largest secular civic event in the world. But when it was founded in 1970, according to Earth Day’s first national coordinator Denis Hayes, “Without the UAW, the first Earth Day would have likely flopped!”
