 Want to know about IAM Leadership Training

Here is a Leadership I report from Shelley Clark and Denise Schoonmaker, after their initial schooling at the IAM’s William W. Winpisinger Education and Training Facility.

During our Leadership 1 training we learned of the IAM’s principals, of our values, and of  the standards that have been set for all IAM members. Learning that the most important thing that we stand for is equality, justice, dignity, decency, and respect. Being part of the IAM gives us a better quality of life. The importance of inclusion was highly stressed. We thoroughly discussed the laws as well as our legal responsibilities that we must abide by. We strive for consistency, solidarity, and job security. Political activism was fully discussed, and our need to be politically active was encouraged. This training was excellent, I would fully encourage anyone that wants to become more involved as a leader in the IAM to attend this training.
