Machinists Union Mourns Loss of Retired Midwest Territory Representative Michael Woltz

The IAM is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of retired Grand Lodge Representative Michael Woltz. He passed away on Tuesday, December 20, 2022, at the age of 76.

Woltz, a nearly 60-year member of the IAM, initiated into IAM Local 1045 in 1964, at Snap-On Tools and was a member of IAM District 6. He was also active in the IAM Reps Association (IAMRA), serving as its president for a number of years.

“Brother Woltz was a true trade unionist,” said IAM Midwest Territory General Vice President Steve Galloway. “His service to the membership spanned decades and touched the lives of countless working families.”

The Woltz family requested that donations be made in Michael’s memory to Guide Dogs of America/Tender Loving Canines in lieu of flowers. Please keep the Woltz family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Memorial services will be held at a later date. Brother Woltz’s obituary can be found here.
