The Political / Legislative Department of the IAM At the IAM”s Political and Legislative Department, our primary focus is jobs. We are constantly pressing Members of Congress to find new and innovative approaches to job creation, pay special attention to the job retention issues and insure that our members and the companies they work for remain victors in the global economic battles. Each day finds us pushing for more: more worker rights, more job security, more jobs, more training, more development, and more political education.
Election Information – Elections and Candidates Whether it’s working behind the scenes getting an anti-labor provision removed from a bill or mobilizing a nationwide grassroots effort, the Legislative Department is one of the few voices in government fighting for working men and women.
The Machinists Non-Partisan Political League is the political arm of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers.
