District Lodge 19 of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) endorsed Rep. Marcy Kaptur's bill to reinstate FDR's Glass-Steagall law, in a vote Oct. 19. District 19 is a national lodge, representing more than 11,000 railroad workers organized by the IAM nationwide.

District Lodge 19, as its website proclaims, represents where the IAM began, back in 1888, when 19 workers working in a locomotive pit in Atlanta, Georgia voted to form a union.
