“Machinists Union members take great pride in building the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter for three U.S. military services. The F-35 program creates a powerful economic impact for our nation and it produces a game-changing aircraft that keeps our fighter pilots safe. Now is the time to invest in the best air-to-air fighter by ramping up the production line to reduce unit costs and continue to handle the world’s current and emerging threats.”
–Robert Martinez Jr., President, International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM)
