Join Our Union
Union members are able to sit down with management as equals and bargain for better workplace conditions. For some, that might be higher wages and better benefits. For others it might be job security or fair treatment. Regardless of your specific needs, the IAM is here to help. To learn more about organizing your workplace please click the link below.
The IAM, or International Association of Machinists and Aerospace workers, was founded in 1888 in a railroad pit in Atlanta, Georgia. The IAM is composed of a number of Districts and Local Lodges, organized along regional and industrial lines, each with particular functions and responsibilities.
IAM District W24 represents workers throughout Northern California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho & Montana. While our Union started in Machining & Aerospace, we've grown to represent thousands of workers in Transportation, Nursing, Mental Health Professionals, Medical Field, Light & Heavy Manufacturing, Maintenance, Public Defenders Office, Public Employees, School Employees, Public Safety, Department of Defense Workers, Forest Products Industry, Truck Manufacturing, Marine Terminals & much more.
