About Local Lodge 2458



IAMAW Local Lodge 2458 is located at Argonne National Laboratory, Argonne, IL.   Argonne is owned by the U.S. Department of Energy.

  It is operated by the University of Chicago.




Most of us are working over at the Advanced Photon Source.




The local was established in June 16, 1971 by its membership elections. On October 5, 1971 received its certification from the IAM and was designated as ETOP-IAM Technician Lodge #2458


In October 1971 the local had 443 members.  On June 21, 1972 our local went out on strike because the negotiations failed that began in February.  The strike lasted until August 1972.
