The Machinist Health and Welfare Trust

The IAM has their own Regence Blue shield administered health and welfare plans to fit our members' families' needs. In fact, many times employers contact us because these plans are cheaper than what they currently pay to cover their employees with comparable benefits. This makes for a smoother organizing process. Sometimes we can make it a win- win situation for everyone. We can raise your standard of living and, at the same time, save the company money.
