TROY, Mich., March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Thousands of Meritor (NYSE: MTOR)
employees around the world will observe International Women's Day today by
sponsoring their second annual Global Service Day, an event that supports
women and women's issues through volunteer service.

Global Service Day is organized by the company's Women's Business Resource
Group and will involve employee volunteers worldwide supporting 22 charities
in 10 countries in all four of Meritor's global regions – an increase in
employee participation from last year's inaugural event.

gained considerable global momentum over the past decade," said Barbara Novak,
Meritor vice president and corporate secretary, who also serves as the
executive sponsor of Meritor's Women Business Resource Group. "We recognized
our Global Service Day had a common goal of ensuring that the future for girls
is bright, equal, safe and rewarding."

This event reinforces the company's commitment to diversity initiatives and
social responsibility in the communities it serves. Meritor facilities choose
volunteer activities and charities based on local community needs.

Among the activities planned for Global Service Day are:

  oScholarship donations and a celebration with autistic children in
    Monterrey, Mexico
  oDelivery of blessing cards and handmade gifts for breast cancer patients
    in Xu Zhou, China

and working to make an impact that will continue to improve lives for years to
come," said Novak.

initiative to achieve 40,000 annual hours of employee community service
