Legislative Issues

The IAM works hard to advance the interests of working families, promote the cause of our members and defend our members’ rights.

Just as IAM solidarity at the bargaining tables helps to improve our jobs, we as the labor force need to stand united and work together to stop the continued assault on working families through legislative action.

Health Care

An excise tax commonly known as the “Cadillac” tax will be imposed on high-cost health care plans in 2018 as part of the Affordable Care Act. Many of the health insurance benefits the IAM negotiates fall into this category. As a result, many employers are lowering the value of their health plans to avoid paying the 40 percent excise tax. The IAM is working diligently to prevent this tax from being implemented.
