NABTU names Bevan Tradeswoman Hero

Local 146 (Edmonton, Alberta) Boilermaker and Canadian Director of National Training for the Boilermakers National Training Trust Fund j’Amey Bevan is the latest woman to be honored as a Tradeswoman Hero by North America’s Building Trades Union. Each month, the program selects four journeymen or apprentices who go above and beyond in their trades.

Bevan began with the Boilermakers in 1998 after a Boilermaker neighbor introduced her to the trade. Over the years, she’s held a variety of positions within the union after working on the tools. Now, she leads Canada’s training program and enjoys advancing the trade for others.

“Making sure that we have really good apprentices and intake processes and making sure apprentices are prepared for work is certainly something I have always been passionate about,” said Bevan.

The Tradeswomen Heroes program was created in a joint effort between NABTU’s Tradeswomen’s Committee and Apprenticeship and Training Committee to spotlight the dedicated tradeswomen within NABTU’s affiliate unions.
