Whether you are in South Carolina or Washington, we are all in this together. We’ve all watched in horror as COVID-19 has taken an unprecedented toll on our nation’s health. Now, it’s our economy and the workers that make it run that are under fire. That’s why the IAM has been on Capitol Hill fighting for the relief needed to get workers across America through this pandemic. Our Healthcare Department is offering EAP and other resources to both members and non-members. Many of our members have volunteered to manufacture PPE for the healthcare workers on the frontline of this crisis. You can learn more by visiting our COVID-19 resource center.

Stronger Together

Members of IAM District 837 employed at Boeing in St. Louis (pictured) are volunteering to work overtime in order to help build face shields needed by health care workers on the frontline of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
The more than 2,000 workers – who build F15 and F18 fighter jets and other defense equipment – will be using eight hours of volunteer overtime each week to assemble medical-grade face shields, which will then be packaged and shipped directly to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). To date, more than 300 IAM members and counting have volunteered to take part in the emergency effort.
