International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM), District Lodge 250 has expanded its automotive membership with an organizing victory on March 27 at BMW Victoria, part of the Gain Auto Group.
“This employer ran a very significant anti-union campaign and these workers refused to swallow it,” said Walter Gerlach, IAM District Lodge 250 directing business representative. “I admire these people for standing up for change in their workplace rather than leave and go somewhere else.”
The 20 new members of IAM Local Lodge 456 consist of mechanics, parts personnel and service writers, said the union.
