 Tell your U.S. Representative to remove the GROW Act before voting on the HEROES Act

The HEROES Act includes a composite pension plan known as the GROW Act that would end employer withdrawal liability from multi-employer pension plans, eliminate the safety net of the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation (PBGC) and make benefits unpredictable.
The IAM cannot support any legislation that would exacerbate the current multi-employer pension crisis.         TAKE ACTION

Officers distributed these LL 847 masks On May 5, 2020 to the membership . They are Made in the USA from 100% cotton. We encourage you to wear yours to show you stand for safety and support all the working men and women out there, especially Health Care Workers and First Responders.

IAM EAP and Addiction Services Program Remains Available to Membership During COVID-19 Crisis

The IAM recognizes this is a stressful time for many IAM members, staff and family members due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The IAM Employee Assistance and Addiction Services Program stands ready to assist members, staff and their families during this tough period.

As with any large scale event such as this we face many challenges. In conjunction with this occurrence we face the familiar list of continuing problems associated with, but not limited to; substance abuse and addictions, mental health, stress, anxiety, depression, financial hardship and socioeconomic issues. All of these are serious matters that can cause problems by worsening the situation and negatively impacting the quality of life for many of our members.

IAM EAP Services can be accessed by emailing¬ iameap@iamaw.org¬ or by calling 301-335-0735.

IAM Addiction Services can be reached by calling 1-888-250-4IAM (4426).

Your IAM EAP and Addiction Services program provides confidential assistance services to IAM members, staff and family members. We stand ready to assist with prevention, intervention, assessment, directed care and follow-up services so our members can resume and maintain their quality of life and work.

We recommend making sure you are paying attention to your¬ eight dimensions of wellness, as provided by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

Please take care of yourself, family, sisters, brothers and friends during this difficult time and remember, the IAM EAP and Retirees Department stands ready to help.

Visit the IAM Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resource Center for continuing updates.

 

If you are called into a meeting with a management representative and you have reason to believe that disciplinary action against you or other member’s may result, you have the right to have a steward present during this meeting. Read the statement below to the management representative, and contact your steward immediately.


READ THIS STATEMENT TO MANAGEMENT:

“If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined
or terminated,
or affect my personal working conditions,
I request that my union representative,
officer, or steward be
present at the meeting. Without representation, I choose not

to answer any question.”

“This is my right under a U.S. Supreme Court decision
called Weingarten Rights.‚ÄĚ
