In the last 5 years alone, 12 IAM officials have been convicted of stealing over $1 million in 9 different states.
The IAM hasn't explained 2,000 fraudulent cards with forged signatures from 2015, which is still under investigation by the Department of Justice.
High-ranking IAM officials use members' dues to pay close relatives' salaries.
The IAM secretly changed its Constitution without approval from its members, allowing them to increase dues whenever they want as well as giving IAM officers automatic raises.
The IAM uses falsehoods and empty promises to get what they want.
At United, the AFA failed members by only being able to escalate IROP concerns to management. They failed ExpressJet members exactly the same way with furloughs. It's one of the few businesses you can fail upward.
The #1 job of the IAM is to look out for the IAM.
