Retiree Chapter

The 20th UAW Constitutional Convention, held in May 1966 changed the UAW Constitution to provide for the establishment of retiree’s chapters in local unions.  Local 412 had already established a retiree’s council which had been meeting monthly since January 1966 and on November 10, 1966 the UAW International Executive Board granted a charter to the Local 412 Retired Worker Chapter.  It was one of the first chapters in the Detroit area to receive a charter.
