Given the diversity of our membership and that our members work in many sectors and industries, the IAM is launching an initiative to better understand issues our members face in their workplaces. We’ve developed brief surveys specific to sectors where our members work, and are inviting members to take this opportunity and share their perspectives with us.
Information from the survey will help us understand your viewpoints on key issues, and help us prepare strategies to represent and fight for our members.
Please join in the efforts in fighting for a better future for you and your co-workers by completing the survey for the sector you work in.
Please select the survey specific to the sector you work in.
“IAM political action committee members know the value of member
engagement,” explains Derek Ferguson, IAM Special Representative for Political
Action. “The more members who are actively engaged in our workplaces – the more
power we have at the bargaining table. The more members who speak up on issues
that matter in our communities, the more power we have to get our governments
to prioritize the needs of working people.” Often it is hard for members to
grasp that there is a connection between collective bargaining and political
action. There is a direct connection between negotiating a pension into your
collective agreement and lobbying the government to protect that pension if the
employer goes bankrupt, as an example.
