Organizing is the life blood of any Union. The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers District Lodge 250 has over one hundred years experience representing workers in British Columbia. In these pages you will find general information regarding Rights and protections Workers enjoy in BC and specific information regarding the IAM Union and how we have advanced our Members interests for over a century.
The IAM Union has been representing workers in British Columbia since 1901. Our Union is well known for its democratic structure and its dedication to the service of our members. It is both a mutual protection and a mutual aid organization. Members are the beginning and the end of every thought and action we take.
All of DL 250’s Business Representatives are elected by the membership at large for a four year term. The District is governed by delegates from our constituent Local Lodges. Our Local Lodges cover different sectors of the economy. We represent a varied cross section of skilled trades including machine/fab shops. heavy equipment shops, commercial transport shops and automotive dealerships.
- LL 11: Machinists and other trades at Avcorp, an aircraft parts manufacturer

DL 250 does not represent air transport workers. They are handled by our transportation brothers and sisters at District Lodge 140.
Whether we are bargaining a new Collective Agreement or defending a member from unfair discipline, we of the IAM Union are there for you .
Service to our Members, other workers and the community at large is our calling and the men and women who dedicate their lives to this noble cause are passionate believers in the Justice and Democracy.
