We are Local Lodge 24 of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers. Local 24 represents over 400 highly skilled men and women who work at Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, the home of Air Force One! We provide worldwide airlift and logistical support for the U.S. President, the Vice President, Cabinet members, and other high-ranking U.S. and foreign government officials.
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.
