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.

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 iamawlocal24@gmail.com
