About IAM&AW Local 24

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.

Negotiating Committees Selected

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.

Thank you to Local 24

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.

Tim Hanson Memorial *updated information*

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 Hanson
6/28/1960 – 9/1/2019

Tim was laid to rest at Cheltonham Veterans cemetery on Sept. 12th at 1pm. Rest in peace Tim, you will be missed.

New Location for Meetings

Brothers and Sisters, after careful deliberation and subsequent vote by the membership at the monthly meeting the Executive board is proud to announce that a new meeting location has been secured for our monthly meetings!

July Meeting Canceled

Due to the heavy flight schedule a majority of the E-Board and members will be unable to attend this month’s meeting. The E-board has made the decision to cancel the meeting.

Anyone with issues or questions please contact your shop steward.

Local 24 Food Drive Completed!

Local 24’s food drive for those affected by the government shutdown was a resounding success. Over 97 pounds of food and non-perishable items were collected and donated to the Capital Area Food Bank. Good Job and thank you to all who donated.

Local 24 is planning on being involved in more community outreach activities throughout the year. If you have ideas or want to be involved, talk to your shop steward or contact the E-Board at
