To all Canadian Local Lodges, District Lodges, BR/GCs, GL Staff

Over the course of this year, a great many IAM members have suffered a furlough or layoff as a result of the pandemic. We are aware that a great many remain in this situation.

The IAM Constitution, in Article G, provides for members who are unemployed for the major portion of
any month (the major portion of any month shall depend on the major portion of the regular working days
in any month) and who suffer a total or proportionate loss of earnings, due to separation from
employment, layoff, or furlough, or sickness or disability, to maintain their good standing by paying a
minimum charge of $2.00 per month, $1.00 of which is remitted to Grand Lodge. Read Bulletin here…
