Thank You, Fearless Women

International Women’s Day is held annually on March 8 to recognize the achievements of women throughout history. Today our union pays homage to the courageous women—known and unknown—who have dedicated their lives to fighting for the dignity of all people.

The Machinists Union is blessed to have so many women leading the charge for justice on the job, including General Secretary-Treasurer Dora Cervantes, the highest-ranking woman in IAM history and a well-known champion for all working women.

Here’s some of what’s being said to recognize International Women’s Day—in the IAM and around the labor movement:

On #InternationalWomensDay, I see women running for office and raising their voices to champion the most important fights for justice and equality. Under my watch, the @MachinistsUnion will have their backs every step of the way. #1uWomen

If you work hard, you deserve time off during the holidays to see your family.
