Machinists Across Country Honor MLK’s Legacy

From coast to coast, IAM members marched in solidarity, celebrated and gave back to their communities this weekend to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Dr. King understood better than anyone that civil, human and labor rights are one and the same,” said IAM General Vice President Diane Babineaux. “The best way we can honor him is to give back any way we can.”

Washington DC area members cleaned, stocked shelves and did renovation work at three Habitat for Humanity ReStore locations.

District 70 Members in Wichita, KS hosted a blood drive to help save lives.

In Seattle, Houston, Charleston, SC and Long Beach, CA, members took part in MLK Weekend events.

The IAM also participated in the AFL-CIO’s annual MLK luncheon.
