IAM Members Making a Difference in 2016 Election

IAM members aren’t the kind of folks to sit back and wait for things to come to them. They get out, put in the work and get the results they’re looking for.

That’s why IAM members are volunteering all across the country to get labor-friendly candidates elected. By phone-banking, door knocking, attending debate watch parties or rallies, and participating in labor walks, they are talking to undecided voters and letting them know which candidates really support middle-class workers. Here are a few examples of Machinists working to make a difference…
