    Union Plus is a nonprofit organization founded by the AFL-CIO to provide excellent consumer benefit programs exclusively to union members (current and retired) and their families. It’s free to sign up, and benefits include everything from special discounts (movie tickets, amusement parks, car rental, floral delivery and more) to financial services, education programs, insurance, hardship help and many other benefits.

    To view all the benefits available to members of the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, visit the Union Plus website.

  • Boilermaker Scholarships

    Each year the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers gives more than $50,000 worth of scholarships to dependents of members, both in Canada and in the U.S.

    Boilermaker scholarships are open to high school seniors who will be entering their first year of academic study at a degree-granting, accredited college or university within one year of their high school graduation and are dependents of Boilermaker members in good standing (includes son, daughter, legally adopted child or dependent of a member in good standing).

    Scholarship awards are based upon a variety of factors, including academic achievement, extra-curricular and outside school activities, career goals, and performance on a typed essay.

    Scholarship applications are due, submitted or postmarked by March 1. For more information, and to submit an application, visit the Boilermakers’ Scholarship Program page.

  • Vacation Trust

    The Boilermaker Vacation Trust was originally established in 1963 as part of the Western States Construction Agreement. Over the years, other lodges have joined the trust, either because they added a vacation benefit to their contracts or they merged their individual plans into this trust to gain legal protection.

    Twenty-one local union lodges participate in the Boilermaker Vacation Trust. They include Locals 4, 5, 11, 13, 27, 28, 29, 45, 60, 83, 92, 101, 107, 193, 237, 242, 363, 502, 549, 627, and 647. If you have worked in the jurisdiction of any of those lodges, you may be entitled to a Vacation Trust benefit.

    The Vacation Trust distributes benefits on December 1 of each year. The payout covers contributions received for work in September of the prior year through August of the current year.

    If you believe you are entitled to a Vacation Trust benefit but did not receive your check, please contact the administrative office at 1-800-833-2682 or by email to BVT@cvadministrators.com. Please note in the email subject line “Unclaimed Check.” Provide your full name and the last 4 digits of your Social Security Number in the body of the email and the lodge(s) and date(s) worked.

    If you are owed an unclaimed benefit, it is important that you claim the benefit as soon as possible, because you will permanently forfeit the benefit if you do not claim it within three years from the date the benefit was payable.

    The Board of Trustees will consider making a payout prior to December 1 where the participant has died or retired. Requests for early payouts should be directed to the Board of Trustees, 20910 Redwood Road, Suites E & F, P.O. Box 20757, Castro Valley, CA 94546-8757.

    If you have any questions about this Trust, please contact the administrative office at 1-800-833-2682 or by email to BVT@cvadministrators.com.

  • Constitution

    The Constitution of the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers is the primary governing document of the union. It governs the actions of the International and local lodges, as well as those of all officers, staff, and members at all levels of the union. When necessary, the International president interprets the Constitution, but its language can be changed only by a vote of delegates at a Consolidated Convention.
