This fall will be extremely busy with the upcoming 2016 Elections and other critical union business, including the 2016 Grand Lodge Convention and the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO Convention.

Therefore, the Wisconsin State Council 2016 Fall Conference will be cancelled.  In lieu of attending the Fall Conference we ask all members to get involved in membership education and Get-Out-The-Vote activities.

We also recommend that your local lodge seriously consider attending the Midwest States Conference being held Wednesday, June 8 through Friday, June 10, 2016 in Brainerd Minnesota.

 

In solidarity,

Machinists response to GE – Waukesha Engines plant closure

facebooktwitterpinterestmail

District 10 and Local Lodge 1377 of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers are saddened to hear of the GE Power & Water plan to eliminate 350 skilled jobs from the Waukesha, WI facility. The Union members of GE Power & Water have provided a skilled and efficient workforce manufacturing world class gas engine products.

GE claims the closing of the facility is directly related to the export financing lapse of the U.S. Export Import Bank. The Republicans in Congress have been in strong opposition to attempts at reauthorize the Bank. The elimination of these jobs is directly related to the GOP’s opposition to the U.S. Export Import Bank led by Scott Walker, Ron Johnson and Paul Ryan.  Their opposition is hurting Wisconsin workers.

While the renewal of the U.S. Export Import Bank is at the center of the Wisconsin job loss, let’s not miss GE’s position. GE is willing to sacrifice American workers for even greater financial gain.

District 10 and Local Lodge 1377 understand this is a devastating blow to our members, their families and the community. The Union plans to engage in open discussions with the Company in hopes of identifying alternatives to the elimination of jobs. The current collective bargaining agreement is planned to expire on May 1, 2016.

Tell Congress – Vote NO Fast Track For the TPP

facebooktwitterpinterestmail

Congress is pushing legislation that would “Fast Track” the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement – a secret deal negotiated behind closed doors by government bureaucrats and more than 600 corporate lobbyists.

TPP threatens everything working families care about: democracy, jobs, the environment and the internet.

The Fast Track bill would limit the ability of Congress to meaningfully debate and amend trade agreements like the TPP – effectively pushing the bill through with just an up or down vote.

Decisions that affect all of us should not be made in secret without input from the public and our elected officials.

Click Here to tell your Congressperson to vote NO on Fast Track for the TPP.
