Duane Zuckschwerdt, director of UAW Region 1-C said, “We want to make sure we support our brothers and sisters … and we want to make sure there’s good quality health care being provided.”
The UAW has some 40,000 to 50,000 retirees living in the area and Zuckschwerdt said he has fielded several questions and concerns about the Genesys contract situation from active and retired members.
“Many of them have their delivery of health care through Genesys and they’re very upset with what’s going on.”
