The IAM is sending thoughts, prayers and support to the victims of a massive tornado that tore through an Oklahoma City suburb Monday afternoon, turning entire neighborhoods into rubble and destroying two elementary schools and a hospital. Officials say at least 24 people lost their lives in the storm, which left a path of destruction a mile wide and 20 miles long in Moore, OK.
The IAM hopes Oklahoma lawmakers will do their part to help the tornado stricken area in their state to recover. Sens. Tom Coburn and Jim Inhofe, both Republicans, have been outspoken critics of federal disaster relief funding for other parts of the country in the past.
IAM International President Tom Buffenbarger welcomed more than 30 Secretary-Treasurers from AFL-CIO-affiliated unions to the William W. Winpisinger Education and Technology Center recently for a meeting that included an analysis of pension and health care issues as well as presentations on the myriad of federal compliance requirements.
IAM members at M1 Support Services have overwhelmingly ratified a three-year collective bargaining agreement that includes a two percent general wage increase beginning July 2013 and a three percent bump in both 2014 and 2015. The deal also raises the employer pension contribution from $2.45 per hour to $3.20 per hour.
