The International Association of
Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers Union,
AFL-CIO, is a proud trade association whose beginnings go back to the
1890s. We currently represent 120,000 members in North America. Members
of our union have worked on nearly every major construction project you
can think of - the Golden Gate Bridge, the Sears Tower, the St. Louis
Arch, and the Oil Sands Plant Expansion in Alberta, the World Trade
Center, and now Freedom Tower. We represent ironworkers who work on
bridges, structural steel, ornamental, architectural, and miscellaneous
metals, rebar, and in shops. Across North America, we build.
And we build safely and skillfully, getting the job done right and on time.
provide many benefits and support for our 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.
