Let us be YOUR advocate. Get representation and support to make a positive change in your workplace.

We are committed to better workplaces, better communities, and better lives for health care workers in Ontario.

Justice on the job and Service to the Community. That’s the motto of the IAM. We’re a union that believes that there’s more to life than just work.

We advocate for respect, dignity, and fairness in the workplace. We work to create positive relationships with employers, while seeking fair pay and good benefits through contract negotiations for your hard work.


Patient Transfer Members


The IAM Union took on the issue of not being properly paid for overtime for us. The resulting arbitration means we now get overtime pay.

Long-Term Care Facility


We got the IAM Pension Plan in our long-term care home. Now I can look forward to a secure retirement.


North Bay

When we joined the IAM Union, we all signed cards and voted “Yes.” No one got in any trouble. It went pretty smooth.



With the IAM as our union we now have our wage grid and wage increases spelled out right in our contract book.
