|Human Rights Committee|
District 751's Human Rights Committee meets the second Monday of every month at 4:30pm at the South Park union hall 9125 15th Place South in the library.
The delegates to the 1976 IAM Grand Lodge Convention adopted a resolution which requires specific actions to be taken at all levels of our Union to ensure that all IAM members enjoy equal opportunities and freedom from (harassment) discrimination regardless of race, creed, color, national origin, age or sex. It is every employee’s right to work in an environment free from discrimination and includes the right to seek appropriate remedies for actions which may not be specifically covered by the contract or formal grievance procedures.
If you feel you have been harassed or discriminated against, the following steps should be taken when reporting your problem.

|Labor History Committee|
The Labor History Committee meets at 2:00 pm on the second Thursday of every month.
The Labor History Committee provides education through various means to District 751 members on the relevance of Labor History to today’s labor struggles. We bring labor history alive in today’s world through displays and photos at the union halls, articles in the Aero Mechanic, reports at local lodge meetings, participation in District 751 conferences, and we discuss a different topic from labor history at each of our meetings for our own education.
The committee produces oral history videos of past District 751 leaders and retirees that can be viewed on the 751 Labor History web page.
We archived the complete set of Aero Mechanic newspapers at the Labor Archives at UW and made them available on line at the District 751 web site.
We maintain a close working relationship with the Pacific Northwest Labor History Association (PNLHA), the Harry Bridges Center for Labor Studies at UW, and the Labor Archives at UW.
The Labor History Committee also participates in the following:
