The Machinists Union stands with the thousands of UAW-represented General Motors’ workers who are walking the picket lines. The IAM supports the union’s pressure to ink a collective bargaining agreement that provides these GM workers with good pay and benefits.
IAM International President Robert Martinez Jr. has voiced his support for the picketers.
Myself and 600,000 Fighting @MachinistsUnion members are proud to stand with @UAW members on strike fighting for fair wages, affordable health care and job security. Stop your corporate greed and do the right thing, @GM. #UnionStrong #StandWithUS pic.twitter.com/ofc1Z02OKX

Some locals are providing water and other resources to picketers, as well as walking alongside our UAW brothers and sisters. #solidarity
