International Association Of Machinists Leader Tells Union Retirees: “The Fight Still Rages On” & “You Are Critical In It”

(SEATTLE) - Seniors may have retired from their jobs, but they still have an essential role to play in their Union, one of the top leaders of the International Association of Machinists (IAM) said.

“You are ‘heroes’ and you have ‘made a difference’ in the ‘lives of many,’” said Gary Allen, the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers’ General Vice President for the Western Territory. “But the ‘fight still rages on’ and you are ‘critical’ in it.”

Corporations have taken aim at Pensions, Social Security, Medicare and have blocked progress on Wage Equality between men and women, Allen told some 300 members of the IAM 751 Retirement Club at their annual holiday luncheon in Seattle on December 14th.

“It makes me ‘mad’ and I ‘know it makes you mad too,’” he said.  “We ‘can’t just stand aside’ and ‘let it happen.’  It’s going to take ‘all of us,’ ‘all of our talents and energies.’  I know you have fought for decades and you have already ‘made a difference,’ but the ‘fight isn’t over.’  We still need you.  You’ve been through the ‘battles’ - the Civil Rights Movement, the Women’s Rights battles, the Anti-War Protests, the fights over the out-sourcing of jobs and the attacks on Retirement Benefits.  ‘You know what needs to be done’ and ‘you know why.’”

The IAM 751 Retirement Club provides social and educational opportunities for Retired Members of Machinists Union District Lodge 751 and their spouses - emphasizing issues that are important to Seniors.
