By law, you and your co-workers have a right to come together in a union. A union acts as your bargaining agent when dealing with an employer to achieve better working conditions, fair treatment, and improved benefits and wages.

The International Brotherhood of Boilermakers has successfully represented workers in many industries across the United States and Canada since the late 1800s. We can help put you on the path to forming a union and having a voice on the job.
