IAM Members Complete Employee Assistance Program I Training


IAM members from the U.S. and Canada complete Employee Assistance Program I (EAP-I) training at the William W. Winpisinger (WWW) Center in Hollywood, MD.

Twenty-four IAM members with diverse employment backgrounds in the U.S. and Canada received certificates for completing Employee Assistance Program I (EAP-I) training at the William W. Winpisinger (WWW) Center in Hollywood, MD.

The course offers unique introductory training for providing meaningful assistance to IAM members and their families in times of need.

IAM sisters, taking part in Employee Assistance Program I (EAP-I) training at the William W. Winpisinger (WWW) Center, strike a “Rosie the Riveter” pose in commemoration of Women’s History Month.

According to field experts and a wide range of professionals, the IAM is the only organization – union, business or government – in North America that conducts this type education. The EAP-I program was first conducted at WWW in 2008, and has since expanded to four comprehensive, college-accredited levels (EAP-I, EAP-II, EAP-III and EAP-IV).  

At the close of the successful weeklong EAP-I session, several IAM sisters gathered for a “Rosie the Riveter” photo to commemorate Women’s History Month and the importance of women being active in the labor movement.

The EAP-I class was the first held under the new directorship of IAM Retirees, Community and Member Services Department Director Carlos San Miguel, Jr.
