GOP-Controlled Congress Targets Wages at U.S. Military Bases

Corporate lobbyists in Washington are attacking the workplace freedom of thousands of IAM members supporting our troops at U.S. military bases.

The Senate Armed Services Committee is considering proposals to remove the Service Contract Act (SCA) and Davis-Bacon Act from the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act. Eliminating the protections would scrap important wage, safety and health standards for working people on federal contracts.

“Without the protection afforded by these acts, companies will drive down wages and benefits in order to maximize profits,” said IAM International President Bob Martinez.
