Proud IAM members who build and refurbish state-of-the-art trains for Amtrak, Chicago’s Metra and more have chosen to stick with the proven power of the Machinists Union.

On Wednesday, IAM Local 2741 (District 19) members at Alstom in Hornell, NY voted overwhelmingly to remain represented by the Machinists Union.

The IAM has long championed the top-notch manufacturing of U.S.-made railcars, especially those made by IAM Local 2741 members at Alstom. IAM advocacy has resulted in greater scrutiny of foreign-made railcars , especially those manufactured in China.

“IAM Local 2741 members are rightfully proud of the extraordinary work they do for customers around the world,” said Richard Johnsen, IAM Chief of Staff to the International President. “The IAM is equally as proud that we will continue to fight on their behalf. I would like to especially thank District 19 President Mike Perry, General Chairman Josh Hartford and our dedicated committee members on the ground for their dedication. We look forward to continue listening to our members and work towards the best representation possible.”
