District Lodge 60 brought 15 new members into the Machinists Union recently by organizing the Vehicle Handlers at two Autoport Limited locations: 11 members in Dearborn, Michigan and 4 members in Hamtramack, Michigan.
I am proud to announce that we have successfully negotiated a first agreement including the IAM Pension Plan, wage increases for all 4 years, and healthcare cost paid at 95%.
This brings the total number of first agreements in the Eastern Territory to 8 for the year.
On behalf of the Eastern Territory and its members, I extend our congratulations and appreciation to District Lodge 60 Business Representative Bobby Atanasovski, and all of the team for a job well done.
LYNN D. TUCKER, JR.
GENERAL VICE PRESIDENT
