Lockheed Martin, IAM Reach Tentative Agreement for New Five-Year Agreement
Negotiations Open for Sunnyvale, Eastern Range and Vandenberg AFB


On Friday, Feb. 23, Lockheed Martin and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM&AW) negotiators reached a tentative agreement for a new five-year contract for nearly 4,000 IAM represented employees at Aeronautics and Space.

The tentative agreement includes a competitive pay package, retirement savings and competitive health care coverage for employees and their families.

IAM-represented employees in Palmdale, Marietta, Sunnyvale, Eastern Range, Vandenberg Air Force Base, Clarksburg and Meridian are expected to vote on the proposed agreement on Sunday, March 4, 2018.

This recommendation acknowledges the dedicated work by the union and company negotiating teams to negotiate in good faith for a contract that provides competitive benefits and positions Lockheed Martin to continue to win business in a difficult economic environment.
