The IAM was founded in 1888 by railroad machinists in Atlanta, Georgia.
The first Canadian Local Lodge 103 was established at Grand Trunk Railways in Stratford, Ontario in 1890.
The IAM today represents some 600,000 working men and women across North America who are employed in a vast array of occupations, including among others, machinists, technicians, office personnel & production workers.
The IAM has been representing members across North America since 1888 and in Canada since 1890.
Today more than ever as working Canadian women & men look around their workplace and their community they realize there is a need for an organization that can, and will, provide the BEST possible protection in an ever-changing work environment.
That organization is the INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF MACHINISTS AND AEROSPACE WORKERS – the IAM!
Fighting together for JUSTICE ON THE JOB while providing SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY!
