The Machinists News is a blog focused on news of interest to members of the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers District Lodge 751, and is maintainted by union staff in Seattle. It is an online supplement to the monthly Aero Mechanic newspaper and the bi-monthly Eastern Washington Machinists News newsletter, both of which are published for members.
District 751 represents 45,000 active, retired and laid-off workers at the Boeing Co. in Puget Sound and California, plus workers at Triumph Composites in Spokane, Pexco in Yakima, Hytek Finishes in Kent, AIM Aerospace in Sumner and BAE Systems in Everett. This collection of talented aerospace manufacturing workers is unmatched anywhere in North America. Our members truly are “First in Aerospace.”
However, District 751 also represents working men and women in other industries across Washington, Oregon and California, including aluminum workers in Wenatchee, metal trades workers at Hanford and bus mechanics at local transit agencies. Our Members include civilian contractors at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Fairchild Air Force Base and Naval Air Station Whidbey Island; regional disposal workers; workers at Grand Coulee Dam; plus auto mechanics, heavy duty mechanics, machinists, welder/fabricators, refrigerator repairmen, building maintenance specialists, irrigation district workers and many others. They’re served by a network of local lodges in Seattle, Spokane, Wenatchee and the Tri-Cities.
