Workers today face multi-national corporations able to shift profits, jobs and assets around the world. When several IAM locals or other unions bargain with the same employer, the Collective Bargaining Department coordinates negotiations. By using a coordinated approach, unions strengthen their bargaining position because companies cannot pit one employee group against another. Employers can benefit from coordinated bargaining because they negotiate one contract instead of negotiating many separate agreements.
