Dear Brothers and Sisters,

This past Friday, our bargaining committee and I had the privilege of hosting Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon and her District Director, Lauren Cox, at the Union Hall. During our meeting, we engaged in a thoughtful discussion about our current programs and our envisioned future. We respectfully requested Congresswoman Scanlon to advocate for increased allocations of V-22s, CC-RAM Aircraft, and support for the CH-47 Block II program to her fellow Representatives in Washington. We also urged her to facilitate a dialogue with the Company to explore additional work opportunities in order sustain our workforce until these programs regain their momentum.

Following our meeting, our Committee and I had the pleasure of guiding Rep. Scanlon and her District Director on a tour of our Southside programs. Their visit allowed them to interact with several of our members, leaving them deeply impressed by the V-22, CC-RAM, and CH-47 union work force. Despite her busy schedule, Rep. Scanlon expressed her commitment to returning for a tour of the Northside.

In our ongoing efforts to address our concerns, we have been in contact with the offices of Senator Casey and Senator Fetterman. A tentative arrangement has been made for Senator Fetterman’s office to visit our facility in early October.

On Friday, October 27, 2023, Local 1069 will be holding its 12th Annual Charity Golf Outing at Deerfield Golf Club in Newark, Delaware. This year, we will be raising funds for the Objective Zero Foundation, whose mission is to prevent suicides in the Military Community. As in past outings, it should be a day of fun with your co-workers. Currently there are 21 foursomes signed up. I’d recommend signing up ASAP before the event is full. If you can’t make it and would like to donate a sponsorship for a hole, a raffle prize, or just to the foundation, see one of the following people or contact the Union Hall: Matt Rogers (, Mike Tolassi (, or Steve “Spoons” Gregg (

Veterans Day falls on November 11, 2023. This year, our Veterans Committee will be offering t-shirts for pre-order only. Shop Stewards have distributed order forms, and all orders must be submitted no later than Monday, October 9, 2023.

A friendly reminder: we are resuming our monthly General Membership Meetings this month. Your attendance is strongly encouraged. The first meeting is scheduled for Sunday, September 24, 2023, at 10:00 AM. It would be greatly appreciated if you are able to attend.

As always, we deeply appreciate your continued support!

In Solidarity,
