Dear Union Members,
Thank you for your financial support in helping our team "1592 Bionic Tiger Robotics team".
Through your support and help we were able to travel to Orlando Florida and Atlanta competitions.
In Orlando, we placed 7th out of 50 teams.
In Canada we placed 7th out of 30 teams.
In Atlanta is where we had our most success though. We were able to place 2nd out of 87 teams and 5th in the world out of 400 teams.
Thank you so much for your support.

Team 1592

U.S. Jobs at Stake in Boeing Tanker Decision

"In the near future the U.S. Air Force will be making critical decisions regarding the purchase of a new fleet of refueling tankers. This decision will have a profound impact on America’s aerospace industrial base and IAM jobs. At stake are over 40,000 U.S. aerospace jobs at 300 contractors, including those at IAM represented facilities of Boeing, Pratt & Whitney, and Spirit Aerosystems.
Boeing’s KC-767 Advanced Tanker clearly offers the best opportunity and value for the U.S. Air Force and for American aerospace workers."

Now we have a chance to help our Union Brothers and Sisters .

Please click this link and send an email to Congress and request them to choose the KC 767 Tanker .
