Local 24 negotiating committee is currently in CBA negotiations with DynCorp International for the ASD contract. 1st Heli CBA’s for both the Pilot’s and Maintainers have been completed and will have ratification votes on Saturday, July 11th in the 1st Heli old main blade office. Any questions please direct them to your shop stewards.
Due to Covid-19 the IAM Grand Lodge has mandated that monthly local lodge meetings are to not be held. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact your steward or E-Board member.
Dyncorp ASD/Heli/Pilots CBA negotiation dates are being finalized, so if you have job description changes you need to get them into the negotiating committee NLT 5/22/2020.
The executive board would like to let you the membership know that we are meeting or discussing options and plans with your companies on a daily basis in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic. We are currently working with your companies to develop and maintain open lines of communication to ensure that plans and information is quickly and efficiently distributed to you the members of Local 24.
We will do our best to update this website as information comes in. In the meantime we highly recommend you take all precautions and follow CDC guidelines.
For further information or if you have concerns please contact your shop steward.
Thank you to all who came out and made this a great event!
The December meeting will be cancelled so that the eboard and membership will be able to participate in the Wreaths across America at Cheltenham Veterans cemetery.

IAMAW Local Lodge 24 has a large number of veterans and we would like to thank each and everyone of you for your service to this country. We would also like to thank those who continue to support and defend us both at home and abroad.
Akima Logistics and Dyncorp ASD negotiating committees have been selected and both recently attended the IAM Negotiation class held at the District 4 offices. The committees have developed timetables and begun strategic planning for 2020 CBA negotiations with their respective companies.
Brother Alexander passed recently and we would like to send our thoughts and prayers to his family and friends. He will be missed.
In the event of the passing of a loved one please let your steward know so that we can express our condolences properly.
Brother Eugene Jemison’s father passed and flowers were sent along with a card. Brother Jemison wanted to make sure the membership was thanked for the gesture.
It is with a heavy heart that we write to tell you all of the passing of Tim Hanson. Tim was stalwart defender of the local and its members. Brother Kent Heck sent this and I can think of no better words:
“Tim Hanson, Chief Steward, Coworker, a friend that would give you the shirt off his back. An outer shell hard as titanium, his insides soft warm and giving, a side of him many never saw, but I have. Many will never know how hard he fought for all of the brothers and sisters of our local 24, he truly was a Fighting Machinist!”
Tim was laid to rest at Cheltonham Veterans cemetery on Sept. 12th at 1pm. Rest in peace Tim, you will be missed.
