William W. Winpisinger Education & Technology Center As we enter the new century, the only way to keep up with change is with education. The William W. Winpisinger Education and Technology Center is the IAM’s most visible sign of our commitment to provide a world class educational facility to train future IAM leaders.
The Winpisinger Center teaches what it is to be a trade unionist. By studying labor history and the role unions play in our society, students learn that unions are more than service organizations. We are part of a larger movement toward economic and social justice with dignity on the job.
