This past week, 65 IAM members from the U.S. and Canada participated in the Leadership I class at the IAM’s Winpisinger Education and Technology Center. Leadership I teaches participants skills and duties necessary to be a good lodge officer and/or active member. This program is the first of three successive programs designed for local lodge leadership. Participants explore the fundamentals of trade unionism and the basic laws and operation of the IAM through the following topics: labor history, parliamentary procedure and lodge administration, structure and services of the IAM, government and politics, role of the steward, and human rights. The members then traveled to IAM’s Headquarters in Upper Marlboro, MD and were given a tour of the building to meet with many department heads and staff. You can watch this weeks video report here
