Forty Instructional Systems Specialists at the Directorate of Training and Doctrine (DOTD) for the Department of the Army at Fort Sill in Lawton, OK, voted to join the IAM. The workers voted to join the IAM to improve their working conditions and to have a voice in the workplace.
“We congratulate and welcome our newest members from Fort Sill who are aware of the benefits that come with a union contract,” said IAM Organizing Director Vinny Addeo. “They have taken the first step toward a better future and we look forward to working hard on their behalf.”
These organizing efforts were led by Organizing Department Grand Lodge Representative Juan Eldridge, IAM Special Representative Chris Casteel and the National Federation of Federal Employees (NFFE-IAM) Local 273 leadership.
“I am pleased to be able to assist these critical federal civilian employees who were seeking to work under the protection of a collective bargaining agreement,” said Eldridge.
