A new bill, still in committee, needs our support! It has a very uphill battle as the current congress is unlikely to pass a labor bill, but if enough support gets through, it could! Contact your senators and spread the word!
Today our new International President and General Vice President were sworn in. IP Martinez and GVP Wallace, IAM local 623 congratulates and welcomes you. We hope you continue the hard fight for a better tomorrow.
IAMAW Local 623 would like to honor and remember the fallen from Pearl Harbor. Thank you to all service members, past, present, and future. We would like to especially honor the families of those who never returned from the battle. Your families have paid the price for all of our freedom.
