District Lodges

District lodges are made up of a group of local lodges in close proximity and involved in the same industries. The district lodge is an administrative, servicing, and coordinating body. It provides mutual protection and harmonious relationships between affiliated lodges and coordinates and assists them in their efforts.

The district lodge can assist affiliated lodges with organizing, collective bargaining, and grievance and dispute settlement, as well as establish training programs and engage in legislative activities if its by-laws so provide.

The Constitution authorizes the International President and Executive Council to form district lodges when two or more local lodges represent members in the same industry. The International President and Executive Council will determine which lodges shall affiliate or remain in affiliation with a district lodge.

Currently, the Boilermakers union has four district lodges:
