Info and Your Rights

The Machinists Union (IAM) is here to assist workers who want to stand
together and unionize the company where they work. By standing together with your co-workers and others in your trade, you have the collective power to negotiate for better working and living conditions and set the standards for the industry as a whole.
Essentially, that is what a union is.

The IAM is ready, willing, and able to work along side and support you and your co-workers’ efforts in organizing your work place, but your time, energy and effort are the essential ingredients of success.

Who we are?

 Since 1888, the International Association of Machinists (IAM) have assisted workers in fighting for a higher standard of living for them and their families. With nearly 700,000 active and retired members, the IAM is one of the largest and most diverse labor unions in North America. From Boeing and Lockheed Martin to United Airlines and Harley-Davidson, you will find IAM members across all walks of life. IAM members demand respect and dignity in the workplace. Together, we have been able to bargain for increased job security, higher wages and improved benefits.
