The Machinists Non-Partisan Political League is the political arm of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers. It was created in 1947 to allow IAM members to gather individual contributions, coordinate political activity, and elect candidates who support IAM members and their families. Candidates we support know that the MNPL stands for economic justice, security in the workplace and equality for every member. They do not take us for granted. The MNPL scrutinizes each candidate thoroughly. We ask tough questions such as their positions on trade, labor law reform, economic conversion, transportation policies, and enhancement of the U.S. manufacturing base.
The Legislative department of the IAM ensures that the members of the IAM are represented in Washington. From legislation that destroys vital laws that protect working men and women, to ensuring that the members issues are heard – the legislative department spends countless hours speaking with congressional leaders on behalf of IAM members.
As with MNPL, the legislative department works to secure economic justice and security in the workplace.
Get involved with the legislative process by contacting your congressional representatives on issues that matter most to you. Research voting records, read current legislation, and find out a little bit more about those who represent you in office. Learn more in the IAM Legislative Action Center.

Answer: MNPL Is Battling Every Day!
The Machinists Non-Partisan Political League is IAM’s heavyweight champion when it comes to politics and legislation. But these fights are expensive. Sadly, money buys access in the halls of power. And politicians listen more closely when contributors come calling. So, MNPL needs your member contribution to wage these fights.
