A statement from IAM International President Robert Martinez Jr.:
Kamala Harris is a great choice for America’s working families. She is a fighter who has stood arm and arm with the IAM for COVID aid for airline, aerospace and manufacturing workers, labor rights and prevention of plant closings. Harris was one of the ten Senators who stood with the Machinists Union and voted against Trump’s NAFTA 2.0. The membership of the IAM, in a democratic vote, chose to endorse Joe Biden for President, and the Biden-Harris ticket’s plan to Build Back Better will renew the manufacturing power of the American worker.
The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) is among the largest industrial trade unions in North America and represents nearly 600,000 active and retired members in the manufacturing, aerospace, defense, airlines, transportation, shipbuilding, woodworking, health care, and other industries.
