IAM Unity and Growth Conference 2023

IAM’s first-ever Unity and Growth had a successful launch on Monday, 21 August in San Diego, CA. The 2023 IAM Unity and Growth Conference will train, educate and inspire IAM officers, staff, activists, and other leaders to organize new members in all sectors and continue to embrace and strengthen the diversity of our union. The theme, “Building Our Future Sector by Sector” takes a systematic and strategic approach to welcoming new members into the labour movement and into the IAM. Participants then spent the rest of the Day One in sector-specific workshops, which will continue for two more days.

David Chartrand, IAM Canadian General Vice-President said this of the conference, “We need to get together often and share our stories – both victories and where we fell short. Exchanging strategies can only help us further along the path we need to go in order to make significant changes in the world around us. I look forward to the findings and reports leading out of the workshops.”

2023 IAM Political Action Symposium

 Alexandre Boulerice MP for Rosemont-La petite Patrie

This was a powerful Symposium attended by 80 Participants from all parts of Canada. I was a participant myself and I have learned a lot about the issues that workers from different sectors are facing. During the workshop, we had the chance to Practice how to prepare Strategic Plan and Actions on how to advocate about the many issues that we face at our workplaces and in our own communities to all levels of Government. It was a Three-day Session at the William W. Winpisinger education and Technology Center (W3 Center). My first time attending a Training like this and it inspired me, and opened my eyes that I can make a difference not only for myself but also for others through Lobbying. We can do more if we work together as a team! We cannot achieve anything if we will not make that first step, be involved.
