Machinists Union: Missouri’s Stand for Workplace Freedom is a ‘Game-Changing Rebuke of a Rigged Economy’

The International Associations of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) is among the largest industrial trade unions in North America, representing nearly 600,000 active and retired members in aerospace, transportation, manufacturing, shipbuilding, woodworking and other industries and the Machinists Union, which has more than 12,000 members in Missouri, is applauding the union-led grassroots movement against SB 19, the state’s harmful, so-called “right-to-work“ law.

IAM Statement on DOL-Supervised Rerun of Election
  • The IAM has agreed to a DOL-supervised rerun of the 2017 Grand Lodge elections for International Union officer positions, including International President, General Secretary-Treasurer and seven U.S. General Vice Presidents. The election excludes the Canadian General Vice President position.

  • The DOL struck down the IAM members’ convention action requiring that candidates for Grand Lodge office show a minimal 10 percent level of support in the union’s local lodges before becoming candidates for election.  The members adopted this provision to assure that elections took place only when there was at least some possibility that more than one candidate for each position would prevail. 

  • The nominations in each Local Lodge will take place in meetings in January 2018, with further meetings in February for lodges that nominate more candidates than the positions call for. If 25 or more locals endorse more than one candidate for International President or General Secretary-Treasurer, or more than seven candidates for United States General Vice Presidents, an election for the contested positions will take place in April.
