With the growing number of young workers, the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers recognizes the importance of responding to the unique needs and expectations of people beginning their careers. The IAM has formed The Young Machinists as a working group within our union 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. We carry the firm belief that moving the youth to become active in these areas will build a brighter future for everyone.
To help spread the word and engage young members in conversation, we have designed a facebook page, at www.facebook.com/YoungMachinists and webpage at http://youngmachinists.iamaw.org . We welcome email comments, questions or suggestions YoungMachinists@iamaw.org. Active participation throughout the IAM will help better our union and our members.
We thank you in advance for all of your help and support.
