The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers seeks a seat on the government’s advisory council on artificial intelligence

On friday june 17 at 1:00 p.m.The IAMAW and leading economists who have witnessed the impact of automation on workers in industries such as airlines, manufacturing, shipbuilding, aerospace, healthcare and hospitality, will offer the workers’ point of view on the impact of this technology.

The effects of artificial intelligence (AI) on employment have generated a lot of interest as we hear daily about technological advancements. COVID-19, in particular, has spurred the adoption of new ways of doing business, most of which require ways to avoid direct contact to reduce transmission. The IAM released a report on the impact of AI on the workforce. Our report, “Charting Change: Workers’ Voices in an Automated World,” focuses on AI technology and its impact on jobs in Canada. The report offers findings and recommendations from focus groups with union members who expressed their concerns and daily realities about automation.
