The IAM recently formed The Young Machinists as a working group to ensure young members’ concerns are addressed and they understand the benefits of working in a unionized workplace.
Younger members often do not understand the value of their dues dollars and union membership. It is the mission of The Young Machinists to educate and motivate the younger generations to become involved in their union, community, and in politics.
To help spread the word and engage young members, The Young Machinists have designed a Facebook page, at www.facebook.com/YoungMachinists and webpage at http://youngmachinists.iamaw.org. They welcome email comments, questions or suggestions YoungMachinists@iamaw.org.
