November 26, 2020

Sisters, Brothers and Friends of the IAM,

While this year has been unlike any other, there is still much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

This challenging time has given us all a new perspective. I know I’m especially grateful for our Machinists Union family—and the work all of our members have done day in and day out during these difficult times.

I am also thinking of those who have been affected most by this pandemic—the families who are mourning the loss of a loved one or picking up the pieces after losing their job. We see … Read More...

We Pause to Remember on 9/11

September 11, 2020

Every year on this date we pause to remember those who lost their lives on that tragic day in 2001. Officer workers, airline crews, police officers, firemen, first responders and folks from all walks of life got up that morning and went about their day as they did every other day, not knowing it would be their last day and that their lives would be forever intertwined with history.

As airline workers we were particularly impacted by the awful events of 9/11. Let us never forget and let us continue to work to unite this country as … Read More...
