The Scranton jurisdiction is a big one, and largely because there is so much infrastructure upgrading happening and other construction being planned in our 12-county area, we’re a busy local expecting to get one heck of a lot busier!

When we look ahead (in summer 2016), we see at least 2 or 3 more really good years in which not only will our 365 members all be working, but when we’ll need lots of boomers and/or new members to keep up with employer demand.

We’re just beginning work on two large gas plants that will need about 120 members between them at peak, and there are several large distribution-type centres that are expected to be built. We also do shutdows and specialty jobs at a nuclear power plant, and many of our people are involved in upgrading work at a large water treatment facility.

Our members are paid well. We enjoy the stability of having employer-paid health and welfare and defined benefit plans. And we always work safe!

We welcome applications from men and women ironworkers and apprentices who are now working for non-union employers.

Come work with the best!
