The IAMAW forges a relationship with the European unions

Visit to France

The IAMAW will be in France to meet with the French aerospace trade unions.

During these three days, a half-dozen meetings will be held with representatives of French aerospace workers, including those of Airbus.

"The study of possible avenues of collaboration between our trade union organizations will be part of the agenda. To be able to meet the challenges ahead, you have to know how to adapt. Given the fact that companies are developing, merging and collaborating globally, we need to improve our capacity for action and our relationship of strength. We can no longer limit ourselves to the borders of a single country. To ensure a better defence of our jobs, our working conditions and that of future generations, we must have cross border relationships", says the Quebec coordinator of the IAMAW David Chartrand.

The IAMAW represents approximately 650 000 members in North America grouped into 1 143 locals and present in more than 200 companies in the United States, Canada, Guam and Puerto Rico.

The IAMAW represents 15 000 members in Quebec, and more than 50 000 in Canada, including 16 000 in the air and aerospace industry.
