District Lodge 1 made history yesterday by registering a major organizing victory at Tobyhanna Army Depot. 330 employees working for Defense Support Services, LLC (DS2) voted overwhelmingly to join the Machinists Union.
District Lodge 1 Director Danny Chmelko was quoted as saying “This is a fine example of teamwork and what dedicated people can do”.
Let’s welcome our new Brothers and Sisters into the Machinist family. We are proud for them to join in our fine tradition as Trade Unionists.
I would like to personally thank those who brought this victory home; Organizer Gary Anthony, Grand Lodge Representative Stephen Miller, Directing Business Representative Danny Chmelko, Assistant Directing Business Representative Bill Wheeler, Mike Chmelko, Frank Hevener, Bill McIntosh.
In Solidarity Always
LYNN D. TUCKER, JR.
