District Lodge 54 Stands 106 Years Strong

Brothers & Sisters,

Chartered on August 7th, 1913, in Cleveland, Ohio, our great District turns 106 years old today. Presently, we service 14,000+ active and retired members and oversee 16 affiliated local lodges throughout Ohio, West Virginia, and Northeastern Indiana.

As we celebrate our past achievements today, we also look forward to our bright future. We continually work to establish and support economic and social justice for all workers, regardless of their gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, race, religion, or national origin. District 54 stands not only strong but proud.

Attached you will find a slideshow video of the life of District Lodge 54 and its great members. Enjoy and Happy Anniversary to The Fighting Machinists!
