Visitation will be Saturday, January 30th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. with Mass of Christian Burial at 12:00 p.m. at Divine Mercy (800 Marquette Avenue, South Milwaukee)

District No. 10, IAMAW, is sad to inform its members that retired Directing Business Representative Richard Presser passed away Thursday, January 21, 2016, at the age of 86.

Dick started working at the Ladish Company in Cudahy, WI, in 1947 after finishing high school.  He left for 6 years to serve in the U.S. Army.   Upon returning from the Army, he returned to Ladish where he served as Steward, Chief Steward, Secretary-Treasurer and President of Local Lodge 1862 of the IAMAW.

In 1967, Dick became a business representative on District No. 10’s staff, the Assistant Directing Business Representative in 1977 and the Director of District No. 10 in 1981. He remained in that position for 14 years until his retirement.

Dick dedicated years of service to labor, government and the community.  A few of the positions he held during his years of service include: Member of the IAM National Planning Committee; President of the Midwest States Council; Member of the IAM National Pension Review Committee; Board of Directors of Guide Dogs of America; Executive Board Member of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO; President of the Wisconsin Citizen Action Coalition; Member of the Wisconsin Labor/Management Council; Board of Directors of Care-Plus Dental; Board of Directors of Blue Cross Blue Shield; Board Member of the Prime Care Labor Advisory Committee; Acting Chair of the Private Sector Council, Member of the Wisconsin Unemployment Compensation Advisory Committee; and Advisory Committee Member for the School for Workers.

While he dedicated his professional life to improving worker’s rights and social justice, Dick’s true love and devotion was his family.  Dick is preceded in death by his wife of 53 years Mary and survived by his 6 children and numerous grandchildren.  Anyone who knew Dick knew he was at his happiest on weekends having his family over for swimming and barbecues.

Our condolences and thanks go out to the Presser family for having shared this remarkable man with the IAMAW for all these years.

Visitation will be Saturday, January 30th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. with Mass of Christian Burial at 12:00 p.m. at Divine Mercy (800 Marquette Avenue, South Milwaukee)

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.
