‘A Dream Come True’ for Machinists Union Graduates

Eleven Machinists Union members can now call themselves college graduates.

That’s a big deal for them and their families. It also opens a new chapter in the IAM’s education partnership with SUNY Empire State College.

Graduates in the program do coursework predominantly online, but also meet periodically at the IAM’s William W. Winpisinger Center.
