The IAM was part of a recent delegation of labor leaders to meet with the Ukrainian Ambassador to the United States. 

Monica Lee Silbas, IAM Chief of Staff to the International President, represented the IAM at the meeting, which took place at the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington, DC.

As the largest aerospace and defense labor union in North America, IAM members produce and maintain much of the ammunition, air defense systems, missiles, rockets and more that the Ukrainian armed forces are using to defend against the Russian invasion. 

“The work of IAM members helps the fight for peace and democracy throughout the world,” said Silbas. “Supporting Ukraine and its people is the right thing to do.” 

Ambassador Oksana Markarova was thankful for the IAM and other unions, led by the Union Veterans Council, who are supporting Ukraine and its people. 

Silbas presented Ambassador Markarova with photos from the IAM Grand Lodge Convention, which featured an IAM member who has done humanitarian work in Ukraine.
