The editors of The Boilermaker Reporter encourage all Boilermaker members to submit articles and letters to the editor on topics consistent with our mission as a union. We publish as many of the letters and stories we receive as space permits.

We particularly would like to receive stories in the following areas:

  • Boilermakers active in politics (especially those running for office)
  • Local Lodges political activities
  • Local Lodges active in community work (raising money for charities, assisting schools, etc.)
  • Individual Boilermakers active in the community

  • Successful collective bargaining efforts
  • Successful organizing efforts
  • Honors received by the lodge or individual member(s)
  • Annual holiday events - Labor Day parades, Christmas parties, annual picnics
  • Any activities by or for retired members
