What is the Ironworkers Union?

The International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Ironworkers Union, AFL-CIO, is a proud trade union whose roots go back to the 1890’s. Members of this union have worked on nearly every major construction project you can think of – The Golden Gate Bridge, The Sears Tower, The World Trade Center and the World Trade Center recovery effort, to name a few.

Some people confuse Ironworkers with Steelworkers. Ironworkers are members of the Building and Construction Trades and Heavy and Highway Department. Ironworkers work on outside projects erecting buildings and bridges and other related work. Steelworkers work in steel mills which produce the steel.

The union provides many benefits and support for its members. These benefits include the advantage of working under a collective bargaining agreement that brings bigger paychecks, better health and retirement benefits, more secure jobs, and safe working conditions. According to Labour Statistics, Ironworkers earn well above the average income for construction trades. Of course, what you will actually earn depends on the collective bargaining agreement of your Local Union.
