Professional Services

You deserve the best at the bargaining table, in the legislative arena, in the campaign for safer and healthier work environments and you have the right to expect people with expertise to assist you. That’s something we can guarantee you.


The IAM has more than 60 full-time representatives on staff in Canada: their number one task – service to the membership. All of our staff representatives come from the rank and file and have an intimate knowledge of what day-to-day life is like in the workplace. They’re professionally trained to do their job and protect your interests, and provide service in English and French (and other languages, if necessary).

The IAM research staff includes economists, statisticians, contract analysts and librarians in the U.S. and Canada. They assist in wage negotiations; prepare special studies on member problems and offer advice on issues like job evaluations and benefit programs.

The IAM promotes equity and diversity through its Women’s and Human Rights Departments, and we are actively working to ensure that the diversity of the workforce and our membership is fully reflected in union leadership at all levels of the union.
