IAM members recently gathered in York, PA to hold the 76th annual Pennsylvania State Council of Machinists conference.
Over 100 delegates and guests attended the three-day meeting, with members from all over the state,.
“The participation was fantastic, and the support from Districts 1, 15, 65, 98, 141, and 142 has been incredible,” said Obie O’Brien, Pennsylvania State Council President. “We heard from many political speakers and our attendees were given lots of good information they will bring back to the membership.”
The big message this year was the importance of voting.
“We won’t tell members how to vote, but we sure will educate them on who in Harrisburg and Washington are supporting union labor,” said IAM Eastern Territory General Vice President David Sullivan
The mid-term election this fall will be on Nov. 8 and members in Pennsylvania and around the country are strongly encouraged to register and vote.
