IAPE turns 80 today! We'll be marking our 80th anniversary with various events over the course of the year, starting with "Know Your Contract" sessions in New York (and yes, there will be cake).
For now, take a stroll along memory lane as we look back at the history of our Union, and how we grew into the organization we are today.
