About the Cover

Throughout this edition of the IAM Journal you will read about the culture of service that surrounds our union. Machinists don’t ser ve their communities to receive recognition or fanfare. T hey do it because they care. I felt this shot from behind, of District 751 memb ers picking up litter captured the essence of the facelessness of volunteerism.

 

—IAM Communications Representative Andrew Hounshell
