Think Unions Are Dead?
Think Again!

Together, We Are IAM UnionStrong!

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. 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.

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. 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.

On Average, Union members:

  • Earn wages, on average, 27 percent higher than non-union workers.
  • Are 54 percent more likely to have pensions provided by their employer?
  • Are more likely to have employer-provided health insurance benefits.
  • Have greater access to apprenticeships and training opportunities
