More than 4,300 shipbuilders of IAM Local S6 are on strike at Bath Iron Works (BIW), in what is currently the largest strike in the United States. The shipbuilders have been on strike for more than seven weeks to preserve good Maine jobs. Thanks to pressure from the IAM and elected officials, the company has returned to the bargaining table.
Progress is being made but we must keep up our support for these members.
Please join us in telling BIW CEO Dirk Lesko to get the best shipbuilders in the world back to work so they can provide the U.S. Navy with the best destroyers in the world.
BIW is the sister shipyard to General Dynamics Nassco.
