About the IAM

With nearly 600,000 active and retired members, the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (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. If you are interested in joining the IAM family, you have come to the right place. The IAM is here to help you secure a voice on the job.

By forming a Union, workers provide themselves with the opportunity to secure a voice in their workplace and ensure justice on the job. Union members are able to sit down with management as equals and bargain for better workplace conditions. For some, that might be higher wages and better benefits. For others it might be job security or fair treatment. Regardless of your specific needs, the Union is here to help. Union members continue to earn more each year than their non-union counter parts. That's why workers seek out the Union to improve their benefits and working conditions all across North America.

Why join the IAM?

Every workplace could use a Union. In Fact, a Union is the only real mechanism that exists to represent the interests of employees in a company. A Union is also the only real mechanism that enables employees to join together to bargain collectively, rather than as a bunch of separate, powerless entities. This is useful in good times, and even more in bad times. By forming a Union, workers provide themselves with the opportunity to secure a voice in their workplace and ensure justice on the job. Union members are able to sit down with management as equals and bargain for better workplace conditions. For some, that might be higher wages and better benefits. For others it might be job security or fair treatment. Regardless of your specific needs, the Union is here to help.
