Ironworkers have a new attitude

As never before in history, we are opening our doors to recruit and welcome new members through active organizing.

To bring union work, wages and benefits to Ironworkers requires all of us (union and non-union) to know our rights and be willing to take action to exercise them. Only then will we be able to win power for all construction workers, our families and communities.

We hope to extend the union work, wages, benefits and training opportunities enjoyed by union construction workers to the entire Southern Ohio & vicinity market. We'll do this by demanding that the competing contractors - including yours - become union at the same time, so that all workers' wages rise together, and contractors gain an even field for competition.

The Union Handbook describes the advantages of being union, spells out good wages, benefits and training opportunities that building trades union members have struggled to achieve.

When you contact trained organizers at the Ironworkers, we will work with you and your co-workers to unionize your employer so that you can become union members. We'll help you learn about your rights during union organizing as well as your rights to overtime pay and safer job sites. We can help expose unscrupulous contractors who exploit or cheat workers and their customers.

We believe that the construction work in our area should work for all of us. Together we can build a secure future for all construction workers that includes good wages, benefits and working conditions.
