Statement from IATSE International President Matthew D. Loeb on Supreme Court Marriage Equality Decision

IATSE General Board Endorses Obama 2nd Term

“Today’s Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage is a victory for civil rights, and therefore human rights and worker rights. It is a truly historic moment. We are grateful for those who have fought hard for this right and are especially proud for our LGBTQ members.

We must remember that the fight is not over for full equality for LGBTQ individuals. Workers still face unfair discrimination and risk job termination because of who they love. As advocates for workplace safety and equality, we know these protections are important. 

All workers deserve fair treatment and respect on and off the job. We stand proudly as allies for the LGBTQ fight for full equality in this country.”

– Matthew D. Loeb, IATSE International President
