Sisters and Brothers,
I am reaching out to ask you for help – this is an urgent call for unity!
As you know earlier this year we successfully organized the flight line at the Boeing South Carolina facility. Predictably Boeing immediately frustrated the will of the people and a democratic vote conducted by the Federal Government by filing frivolous objections!
Now just weeks before Christmas Boeing fired six (6) of your most staunch supporters. We have filed Unfair Labor Practices and our Legal Team feels confident they will be vindicated.
The innocent victims of this Union Busting company are these families fighting for a better way of life – It’s a shameful indictment of this corporation.
I am asking that we rally behind these brave families and show them and the world what it means when you become part of the Fighting Machinists Family. The way we can do this is by all of us donating financially to this fight. I have asked every full time Representative in the Western Territory to donate at least $50.00 to the cause. This is a link to a go fund me account that has been set up for this: GoFundMe account
I ask you to do what you can in the spirit of IAM Unity – this is all or fight!
Thank you and Happy Holidays to you and your families!
Gary R. Allen
General Vice President
IAM Western Territory
