District 751 Welcomes New Members at URS

The 352 workers who perform site maintenance and repair work for URS Corporation in Dupont, WA, have voted overwhelmingly for IAM representation. The workers will now join District Lodge 751 in Seattle.

“District 751 President Tom Wroblewski and his team, headed by Organizing Director Jesse Cote, Jr., have led the Western Territory once again in exhibiting the power of attraction rather than promotion,” said IAM Western Territory General Vice President Gary Allen. “This successful campaign was achieved in part because of the fine job the District has done in organizing other Service Contract units. The URS workers saw the District’s success in achieving first contracts for SCA units, and they wanted the same. Thanks to all who participated in the numerous house calls and other activities that made it possible to bring this victory home for the District.”
