UAW Local 2488



Happy Thanksgiving from everyone at United Auto Workers Local 2488! We encourage our members to safely enjoy this extended holiday weekend with family and friends.

The Union Center at 10226 E 1400 North Rd in Bloomington will be closed until 7:00am on Monday, December 1, 2014. If you need assistance, call 309-888-8010.

The following statement can be attributed to UAW Vice President Cindy Estrada:
“The dirty little secret this report reveals is that, more often than we realize, companies simply aren’t delivering on the good manufacturing jobs they promise our communities.

We meet workers every day who are stuck in exactly the kinds of jobs described in this report – ones that pay barely enough to support a family and that remain ‘temporary’ for months or even years on end.

Delegates at the 36th UAW Constitutional Convention recognized that advances in technology make the mandatory mailing of a printed version of Solidarity unnecessary for the vast majority of our members. They overwhelmingly voted to make the printed version available only to members who "opt-in" to receive it.

They took this action to save our union the hundreds of thousands of dollars it costs to print and mail the magazine. We understand that some members still like to have an actual hard copy of the magazine to read. To continue to receive one, members can opt-in by.....

With the callback of supplementals and laid-off workers, it has come to our attention that we have a large number of members who have not updated their contact information.
