A “Thank You” from President Loeb for Election 2012

IATSE General Board Endorses Obama 2nd Term

Message from International President Matthew Loeb:

I would like to thank all of the leaders and members of this great union who contributed to the re-election of President Obama last night.  We built a political machine throughout the United States. From my office to the Districts to the Locals to job sites, homes, friends, family and neighbors we made a difference in this crucial election that bears so heavily upon the lives and security of IATSE members.  I am proud of the work we did and the results, but we must remain engaged and active into the future.

Make no mistake that efforts to weaken unions both at the bargaining table and in the political arena will continue.  We must remain prepared and agile to engage in these battles as they arise.  We must also support and fight for progressive legislation and policy that supports workers, and hold government  accountable to its obligation to protect the interests and meet the needs of working families.

Please accept my gratitude to those who volunteered, sacrificed time, donated money and voted. Your participation is crucial.
