 Happy New Year Fireworks




On May 29th 2013 General Council passed a motion to reconvene the Constitutional Committee. Proposals to amend the Constitution and By-Laws of Local 223 must be submitted to your Divisional Chairperson by September 1st 2013. The Constitutional Committee will then review all proposals. There will be a membership meeting in the spring of 2014 for membership to vote on the final proposals.


Attention: Local 223 Members – Contract ratification results

All of the ballots have been counted and the Local 223 UWUA membership has overwhelmingly ratified the four-year contract with DTE covering Trades, OPT and Gas members.

Local 223’s Executive Board wants to extend a huge thank you to our membersfor voting on the tentative and foryour participation in the surveys. Through the information we gathered from the survey, membership meetings, and through one-on-one discussions with members, the Union built the list of contract demands and we worked hard and held firm in addressing them.

Specific details will follow in upcoming Steward Talks. The first signing bonus will take place within 30 days and the pay increase will be given beginning the pay week of June 3, 2013. Local 223 members will receive future communication once these details are confirmed.
