July 1, 2009 - In a generous letter of support, Maryland Democratic Sen. Senator Barbara Mikulski extended congratulations to IAM International President Tom Buffenbarger, the Executive Council and other newly installed leaders of the IAM.
“Friends, I am always grateful for your dedication and hard work on behalf of working men and women across the nation,” wrote Sen. Mikulski, who serves on the Senate Appropriations Committee, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. “You know I wear the union label proudly on my clothes, on my heart and on the floor of the U.S. Senate.”
Sen. Mikulski also pledged to continue the fight on Capitol Hill in support of such bills as the Employee Free Choice Act and quality health care.
