The National Department has released the National Agreement Contract Books via the Internet, I am happy everyone can receive factual information as already during this election process some are confusing the National Agreement and the UAW Constitution.
The link is listed below;

email to someone printer friendly create pdf of this news item | 26 Mar : 11:55 | Category: Officers

Forms Available in the plant or at Local 372 Offices.

Resolutions for the 36th annual constitutional convention are now being taken for any such resolutions you may have. So you may ask “what is a constitutional convention?” every four years the UAW hosts delegates elected by the membership to be the voice of the UAW membership and during this convention adopts resolutions concerning the UAW Constitution.

Some of those resolutions you can expect are;  
*Nomination and Election of UAW International 
*Nomination and Election of UAW International
    Vice Presidents   
*Nomination and Election of UAW International

Some other issues the convention will undoubtedly tackle;
*dues increase of one half hour
*appropriations of UAW strike fund
*UAW finances  

You can find a digital copy of the UAW Constitution online at the following link. 

Please do not get this confused with the National Agreement between Chrysler and the UAW! As it appears some are confused as this convention does not address our plant wages, health and life Insurance, profit sharing overtime or many other areas as WE are covered by the National Agreement between Chrysler and the UAW.

Deadline for resolutions is April 10, 2014 and will be read aloud and voted on at the April 13, 2014 Union Meeting.

In Solidarity, Gabe

GO  ------Development tab  ----Tuition assistance
To be eligible for tuition assistance, a worker must be a UAW-represented Chrysler employee with seniority on the active rolls or on temporary layoff. Employees may receive up to $5,000 per year. In no event shall the total assistance to an employee exceed $5,000 per calendar year. Each course will be reviewed by TAP administrators to determine whether it is eligible.

The Scholarship Program for Dependent Children and Retiree Tuition Assistance remain suspended.

For questions about TAP,

please contact Pat Byers, UAW, or Colleen McBrady, Chrysler Group LLC, at the TAP office, 888-675-1392 (fax: 586-427-6747) or email Please include your name, CID and UAW Local number when sending email.

Tuition Assistance Plan Overview
                                         Who is eligible?
Only active employees are eligible. An active employee is defined as one who:
Has achieved seniority
Is on temporary layoff
Is on Military Leave of Absence

Benefit Level The Tuition Assistance benefit level provides up to $5,000 per calendar year for jobrelated degree-seeking courses at nationally and regionally accredited universities.
Application Process TAP is designed to be a pre-paid program. However, when an approved school will not accept a voucher, the employee must pay the school directly and apply to the TAP office for reimbursement.

Reimbursement requests
must be mailed. Tuition Assistance Application forms and other TAP-related documents are available through the Training tab of the UAW-Chrysler National Training Center website at An online application process is being developed and will be implemented in June 2012. Until then, TAP applications must be manually filled out and mailed or faxed at least 21 days prior to the start of a class. Please mail to: Or fax to: UAW-Chrysler Tuition Assistance Program (586) 427-6747 2500 E. Nine Mile Road Warren, MI 48091

Approval Process
TAP administrators will review your application. If your application is rejected, you will receive a letter from the TAP office that explains why. For approved classes, a TAP Voucher will be mailed to your home address. This voucher should be treated like cash or a check – it is your payment to the school for your tuition. Your voucher is not valid until you sign it. You must do so before presenting it to your education provider. If a class for which you were approved is full or cancelled, you may substitute an equivalent course. However, verification of course change must be sent to the TAP office.

Refunds that result from dropping a class must be returned to the TAP office.
Covered Fees
TAP benefits include payment of certain fees (such as technology and lab fees) Duplication of tuition or fees already covered by state or federal education assistance plans or programs is prohibited. The following are examples of reimbursable and nonreimbursable expenses: Reimbursable expenses:
Tuition fees
Laboratory fees
Technology fees
Registration fees Non-reimbursable expenses:
Supplies, equipment, products or materials
Late registration or add/drop fees
Transportation or parking fees
Student ID fees
Recreational activities
Application fees
Test or examination fees
Graduation expenses
Book fees
Payment Process When you register for your approved courses, it is your responsibility to provide the TAP Voucher to the school. This authorizes the school to invoice TAP and insures that payment will be made. It is also your responsibility to follow up with the bursar’s or accounts payable office at your school to ensure that the TAP office has been billed for the class.

The TAP Voucher will expire 120 days after the completion date of the class. Within 60 days of the end of the school term, you must verify completion of your class(es) and submit a grade report. Future TAP eligibility may be affected by failure to do so. If you choose not to attend classes for which you were approved, write “Void” on the TAP Voucher and send it to the TAP office. The approved amount will be re-applied to your benefits.

School Eligibility
All educational institutions and job-related degree-seeking programs must be approved by UAW-Chrysler TAP administrators. The schools must be accredited by a nationally or regionally recognized agency.

The National Training Center has the authority and discretion to interpret the terms of the Plan under the provisions of the Memorandum of Understanding on Joint activities (M-9). This authority includes, but is not limited to, the authority and discretion to approve schools and courses under the Plan and to issue guidelines interpreting the Plan.
