Sisters, Brothers and Friends of the IAM,
As 2019 rapidly nears its end and we make our various holiday plans, I want to let you know what an honor it is for myself and your Executive Council to serve our great union.
The IAM is much more than territories, districts, local lodges and shop floors—it is family. Our Machinists Union family will be in my heart as we close out the year, and my gratitude goes out to all of you for your hard work in 2019.
Whether your plans include traveling to visit family and friends or taking on the role as host, I sincerely wish you all the best this holiday season.
For those of you who remain on the job during the holiday season, I offer you a special thank you for all you do.
Robert Martinez Jr.
