Union Training

In-person trainings are back at the William W. Winpisinger Center (W3) in Maryland this year!

Spaces are limited for each class due to the Covid-19 space restrictions, so if you are interested please register early. Do ensure that you have permission from your supervisor to attend before registering.

Transportation to and from W3 is booked by travel agents contracted by IAM/W3. When you sign up, the information provided (i.e., name) will be used when purchasing plane tickets and needs to match your State ID or Passport. We do request that Locals cover any costs on the home front, such as airport parking or hotel rooms needed before/after the session so stewards can travel safely to and from the airport.
