Standard Contract Language

The bargaining parties that participate in the IAM National 401(k) Plan must agree to the Plan's Standard Contract Language (SCL) and special class groups can participate under a special participation agreement. These documents set forth the basis for participation in and contributions to the Plan.

Certain options, as shown in the the Plan's Standard Contract Language, may be negotiated by the bargaining parties.
