The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, the IAMAW, is a large union that is active in more than 200 basic industries as defined by the US Department of Labor. It maintains one or more agreements with almost every major employer in the USA and Canada.
Goals of the IAMAW include: raising wage rates to correspond with the rising costs of living, ensuring equal pay for equal work regardless of sex, race, or national origin, providing a safe and healthy workplace, and securing benefits such as paid sick leave, medical coverage, and retirement/pension funds.
The IAMAW is a strong supporter of Guide Dogs of America and is proud of their role in the founding of our school. We offer our special thanks to the IAMAW for their part in founding our organization and for their continued generosity and dedication since 1948.
