The Industrial Conference will prepare IAM representatives and members in several key economic sectors to better meet the challenges of organizing and bargaining in today’s fast-paced economic environment.

The conference will feature general sessions for all delegates and breakout sessions of six individual industrial sector groups: Energy, Natural Resources, Wood Products and Agriculture; Aerospace and Service Contract Act; Automotive; Public and Government Employees; Tool and Die/Machine Tool; and Shipbuilding/Brewery/Electronics and Manufacturing. It is a unique opportunity for members working in these sectors to share experiences and develop strategies for successful bargaining and organizing.

Registration will be on Monday, June 15 and early on June 16, open Tuesday, June 16 and conclude by noon on Friday, June 19. The conference will be chaired by IAM General Vice President Robert Martinez, Jr., and International President Tom Buffenbarger will deliver the keynote address.

Our local has voted to send 4 members to attend this important conference in order to bring back the knowledge and information to implement ideas and strategies to move our local forward!  We look forward to the wealth of information our members will bring back and put to good use!
