Boilermakers are involved in manufacturing all across North America. Union members working in the manufacturing industry create quality products including everything from golf balls to caskets to heat exchangers and steel beams for highways and buildings—just to name a few. Members work in paper mills and chemical plants. They manufacture battery liners, vessels, tanks and even cryogenic freezers.
Watch a video about the Boilermakers from Local 104 in Seattle and their work at Markey Machinery where Boilermakers manufacture marine equipment. Members build the “Cadillac of Winches” for a variety of consumer needs. They even manufacture research winches for the oceanographic research fleet in the U.S.Find more Boilermaker Films
