About Us

The IAM Organizing Department welcomes you to discover the advantages of belonging to our Union. Every day, workers contact us because they want positive change in their workplace.

The IAM is a powerful and respected advocate to have on your side.
As a member if the IAM, you will belong to a Union with a proven record of standing up for the issues you face in the job and in your community.

Our 400,000 members work in many sectors, chiefly aerospace manufacturing, repair and air transport.

The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM), has achieved tremendous gains for aerospace workers –from decent wages, excellent benefits and better working conditions, to fundamental workplace rights.

Our record has equipped IAM to fight and win some of our toughest battles facing workers today.

When you become a member of IAM, you are never without the backing or resources you need to protect your rights. Instead of being forced to deal with an employer alone, unionized workers have a strong voice in negotiating the conditions of their employment and protecting their rights on the job.

A union contract is a powerful tool that safeguards you and your co-workers from unfair treatment, discrimination and disrespect. It is a legally binding contract that covers all aspects of your working life and provides you with a grievance and arbitration process to resolve workplace disputes.

IAM members can also access a wide range of benefits and recourses including strong service representation, education and training opportunities, health and safety support, WSIB advocacy and more.
