About Us

Justice on the Job and Service to the Community

That is the motto of the IAM.

We’re a union that believes that there’s more to life than just work.

Based on the values of respect, dignity, and fairness, we are committed to building better workplaces, better communities, and better lives. This commitment underlines how we negotiate solid contracts on your behalf. We try, where possible, to create positive relationships with employers, while seeking fair pay and good benefits for your hard work.

We get you what you need, without risking what you already have.

Welcome to IAM, a union committed to helping you get the most out of every day.

Why choose IAM?

Our professional representatives and highly trained stewards back you up in your workplace. We are there to answer your questions, help you when problems arise at work, and advocate on your behalf.

Our representatives also help negotiate contracts that make sure you are fairly compensated for your work. But good representation, fair wages, and reasonable hours are only one part of the story. We also consider what you need to succeed in your life outside of work.

That’s why we offer:

  • Safety & skills training
  • Job security
  • Health plans
  • Retirement savings plans
  • Grievance procedure
  • Bereavement benefits
  • Member discount program
  • Scholarships
