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.
