Divisions

The International Brotherhood of Boilermakers has established a number of divisions to enable officers and staff representing lodges within the same industry to work together more efficiently. Like all aspects of the union’s structure, over time divisions have been added and eliminated to accommodate the changing make-up of our membership.

Two divisions have been created to accommodate mergers. The Cement, Lime, Gypsum, and Allied Workers (CLGAW) Division was created in April 1984 when the Boilermakers merged with the Cement, Lime, Gypsum, and Allied Workers Union. The Stove, Furnace, Energy, and Allied Appliance Workers (SFEAW) Division was created in October 1994 when the Stove, Furnace, and Allied Appliance Workers International Union of North America merged with the Boilermakers union. These divisions are represented on the executive council by their geographical vice president and also by the International Vice President-at-Large – Industrial Sector Operations.

Currently, the International Brotherhood has seven divisions:

The larger divisions have full-time directors who provide a variety of services to lodges within their divisions.
