      Are you prepared for the 2016 Election?
      09/24/16 - IATSE Local B4
      Dear Local B-4 Member, In 2014 too many anti-union candidates were elected to all levels of government across our country, some by a small margin of votes. And we have been fighting some of them in the MA State House for 2 years. If we are to survive as a healthy local, we must have elected officials who will fight for policies that are good for all members of Local B-4.
