We can say with pride that today IAM contracts are among the best in Canada. We have long experience bargaining national agreements with national bargaining units. We have dealt with unconventional bargaining, essential services and interest arbitrations.
IAM agreements contain job security provisions and protect our members in layoffs and restructuring. Promotions, under an IAM contract, are based on seniority, not on being friends with the boss.
We provide protection against unfair firing or discipline. Employers must prove their case against a member through a grievance procedure. The IAM has experts to handle those grievances and we’re proud to say we win most of them.
