ACT Ohio Iron WorkersThe International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers Union, AFL-CIO, is a proud trade association whose beginnings date back to the 1890s. The Ironworkers (IW) currently represent 120,000 members in North America.

Their members have worked on nearly every major construction project, from the Golden Gate Bridge, to the Willis Tower, to the St. Louis Arch, and the Oil Sands Plant Expansion in Alberta, the World Trade Center, and now Freedom Tower. The IW represents Ironworkers who work on bridges, structural steel, ornamental, architectural, and miscellaneous metals, rebar, and in shops.

Throughout North America, they build safely and skillfully, getting the job done right and on time.

The IW provides benefits and support for their 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.

Members not only receive great training opportunities, but also the chance to become a local president, business manager or perhaps a business owner.
