I was taught a little growing up, my Father and Grandfather (who was an organizer in the 40's) told me about the sacrifices they made. It's too bad that most that hired in in the 90's haven't been taught the history of the UAW (and unions in general).<quoted text>Back in the 70's when we got dental the older people would tell u that the dental was for your famiy since theres was grow up by than they would ask u to remember them and to give up a quarter an hour on each rise and have it go to the retirees. So when u retireed u would have a decent retireement and bennys and help them also
As I stated before, thanks for the reminder. It brings back a lot of good memories. I think maybe the union should pass out a synops of the unions history with everyone's FIRST union dues payment. Maybe there would be less infighting.
