[Congressional Record Volume 164, Number 74 (Tuesday, May 8, 2018)] [Extensions of Remarks] [Pages E604-E605] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] TRIBUTE TO CHUCK HALL ______ HON. SANDER M. LEVIN of michigan in the house of representatives Tuesday, May 8, 2018 Mr. LEVIN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to pay tribute to Chuck Hall, a close friend and longtime leader in the UAW, who is retiring after 46 years of dedicated service to the union and to his fellow members. Chuck Hall worked his way up the ranks on behalf of workers and their families. He joined the UAW in 1972 as a member of Local 3, when he worked for Chrysler's Winfield Foundry on the east side of Detroit, Michigan. In 2005, Chuck became a UAW staff member, and in June of 2010, he was elected Director of Region 1 at the UAW's 35th Constitutional Convention. UAW Region 1 has the largest membership of any UAW region, including 52,000 active employees and approximately 100,000 retirees. As Director of Region 1, Chuck oversees 40 local unions covering 8 counties in Michigan as well as Canada. Throughout his tenure as Director, Chuck has been an energetic and attentive leader committed to ensuring that his brothers and sisters in the UAW are fully represented while training local union officers to be successful leaders themselves. He has hosted hundreds of training programs and conferences to give local union officers the tools they need to effectively conduct strategic planning, enforce health and safety of their members, handle grievances, and run their local unions. Chuck's leadership extends broadly throughout the community. He serves on the boards [[Page E605]] of organizations which provide vital services to people throughout Metro Detroit, including Community Caring, United Way of Southeast Michigan, and Care House. He is especially proud of the work done by Community Caring, which provides eyeglasses to children whose parents cannot afford to purchase them, and provides Christmas presents to children who would otherwise not receive them. I have no doubt that Chuck's wife, Joyce; his children Alicia, Charles II, and Jason; and his grandchildren Savannah and Charley will welcome the opportunity to spend more time with him during his retirement. I am confident that Chuck, an avid bowler, will look to add to his incredible 13 sanctioned perfect 300 games at the blowing alley. Mr. Speaker, I have worked closely with Chuck throughout his 8 years as Director of Region 1, and like so many in public life and in the labor movement, I have been deeply grateful for his wise counsel on many issues and for his friendship. I ask my colleagues to join me in thanking Chuck Hall for his 46 years of service to the men and women of the UAW, and in wishing him well in his retirement.
