Dear Fighting Machinists,
Thanksgiving gives us all an opportunity to thank the people we care about and cherish in our lives.
As one of the largest and most diverse labor unions in North America, IAM members work across different industries and work diligently to make every holiday happen.
Many IAM members sacrifice their own holiday to ensure the safety and comfort of millions of travelers and keep the industries we proudly represent afloat.
As the global pandemic took the world by surprise, our members have shown up and stepped up. Thank you for your hard work, resilience, excellent service and expertise!
You and all the 600,000 active and retired IAM members have given so much to strengthen our union, advance our economy and keep North America and the world safe.
Myself and the entire IAM Executive Council wish you and your loved ones a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
Robert Martinez Jr.
