Welcome to Local 1584’s Education page. Here are a few links to some of the educational opportunities available through the International Association of Machinists. If you have any questions about other opportunities that exist or would like assistance with college/higher education application materials, please stop by one of the Lodge’s monthly meetings or contact Casey Gallagher at the Hall.
The Winpisinger Center teaches what it is to be a trade unionist. By studying labor history and the role unions play in our society, students learn that unions are more than service organizations. We are part of a larger movement toward economic and social justice with dignity on the job.
In addition, the Winpisinger Center is a place where our members learn how to be good leaders. Whether it’s a member, shop steward, local or district officer, or grand lodge representative, everyone who attends this facility goes home better prepared and more motivated to do a good job for our members.
