Boilermaker conferences cancelled through August

DURING THE COVID-19 pandemic and out of concern for the safety of participants, speakers, staff and contracted vendors, the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers has made the difficult decision to cancel all large-scale in-person meetings and conferences hosted by the International (or specific International Vice President areas) through at least August 2020.

Cancelled events include the annual Western States Tripartite Conference set for Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; the Industrial Sector Operations Conference in Las Vegas; the Boilermaker Industry Tripartite Conference in St. Andrews, New Brunswick; and the MOST National Tripartite Alliance Conference and Southeast Area Tripartite in Destin, Florida.

The International will continue to monitor the pandemic climate and evaluate risks associated with large gatherings to determine if modified events—which could include virtual events—could take place later in the year.
