Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.

The Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT) is celebrating 133 years of union strength. Like the members of all our affiliates, the workers who are part of IUPAT built America and remain committed to her success. “Joe Biden has supported the IUPAT’s post-election organizing push for robust federal infrastructure spending matched with the passage of pro-worker labor law reform that could level the playing field for labor unions in the United States. The IUPAT is aiming to fortify the power of workers in both union membership and market share, as well as a demand to fund jobs throughout the country that rebuild and repair our infrastructure for years to come,” said IUPAT General President Kenneth Rigmaiden. Click here to watch this inspiring video of why this election is so important to union members.

Organizing in the Time of COVID-19: Worker Wins

Despite the challenges of organizing during a deadly pandemic, working people across the country (and beyond) continue organizing, bargaining and mobilizing for a better life. 

TWU Reaches First Tentative Agreement with JetBlue: The Transport Workers Union (TWU) announced another historic milestone for its members, with a tentative agreement for in-flight crew members’ first contract at JetBlue Airways. The union called it an “epic contract” that was no easy feat, as the airline industry and the country are in the midst of a global pandemic and economic downturn. “Our negotiating team recognized the importance of bargaining this inaugural agreement, prioritizing our members’ long-term job security, codification of work rules and quality of life issues into this agreement. Bringing over 5,000 crew members under the protection of a trade union contract, right smack in the middle of COVID-19 is a Herculean achievement,” said TWU International President John Samuelsen. The union’s negotiating team and JetBlue management are currently reviewing the final document before sending it to members for a...

Service + Solidarity Spotlight: IAM Releases Latest ‘Broken Promises’ Video

Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.

In July 2019, Ingersoll Rand shut down its manufacturing plant in Cheektowaga, New York, affecting more than 300 members of Machinists (IAM) Local 330. In the latest “Broken Promises” video from IAM, the union shows how President Trump has failed to keep manufacturing jobs in the United States. Ingersoll Rand outsourced some of its production capability to its Italian facility and continued existing production in its facility in Wujiang, China. “The new facility in China hasn’t built a machine yet that was able to pass through the tests,” said Local 330 Chief Steward Frederick Fineour. “Until they do that, they’ll continue to struggle.” This plant is one of dozens of IAM-represented factories that have closed during the Trump administration.
