If a class is "implementing Serializable" it should contain that variable.

You can switch the warning off (Window->Preferences ...) if you don't want to comply
to this (small) standard.

Most people switch it off.

Window->Preferences->Java->Compiler->Errors/Warnings->Potential programming problems-> 1st option.
