Organizing

The importance of organizing should not be lost on any member in the Machinists Union. Our future contracts depend on more of our members in each industry gaining power at work.

The Eastern Territory maintains a constant focus on achieving and surpassing this goal for the IAM.

As each bargaining unit works towards an industry leading contract, each contract improvement leads to an increase in the contract at the next company, creating a constant cycle of improvement for working families.

Don’t leave your friends, neighbors or community behind; organize them today.
