11/14/2019- Vice President Mike Pence has rescheduled a previously planned visit to the area and will now make a stop at Fincantieri Marinette Marine next Wednesday. Pence will tour one of Lockheed Martin’s Freedom-class littoral combat ships which are built in Marinette for the U.S. Navy, then speak with employees at the local shipyard about the importance of manufacturing, workforce development and the economy. FMM recently signed the Pledge to America’s Workers, a White House initiative spearheaded by Ivanka Trump which calls on companies to commit to new or enhanced career and job training opportunities for American workers. Pence canceled his visit to Marinette Marine October 23 to join President Donald Trump in D.C.  for a statement on Syria.
