October was a busy month for IAM representatives at District W2 as two of their contracts were back on the table. Machinist members ratified agreements with both aerospace contractor Delaware Resource Group (DRG) and manufacturer Koppers, Inc. in North Little Rock, Arkansas.
It’s a proud moment for one machinist to be inducted into the Georgia Labor Hall of Fame. So when four IAM members were honored at this year’s ceremony, proud didn’t begin to describe the emotions felt by our union family.
When Jerry L. McCune walked into Vance Air Force Base in 1965, everything changed. Little did he know it was the first step of what would become his life’s work. And that nearly 50 years later, it would lead him to be inducted into the Oklahoma Labor Hall of Fame.
