Please urge members of Congress to help save the U.S. aerospace manufacturing industry and the millions of jobs it supports as part of the urgent relief package in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
IAM International President Robert Martinez Jr. recently sent a letter to members of Congress urging support for hundreds of thousands of aerospace workers affected by the coronavirus crisis.
“As the largest aerospace manufacturing union in North America, the IAM and its members know well the importance of this vital industry,” said Martinez. “The industry provides for nearly 900,000 direct jobs and accounts for more than 2.5 million direct, indirect and induced jobs. Many of these jobs are high-skilled, union jobs and are proven gateways to the middle class.”
On behalf of more than 100,000 @MachinistsUnion members and millions more who depend on the aerospace manufacturing industry, I am imploring every member of the U.S. House to support #COVID19 financial relief for aerospace workers.
