Washington DC’s 1,000 Local 5 structural ironwork members work for employers who do a lot of glass finish, structural and miscellaneous ironwork.

Our 400 rodbusters work mainly on power plants, lots of commercial developments, infrastructure projects and federal government construction projects.

Our high-rise construction work within Washington is restricted to 12 stories, but we’re working on much taller projects further out from the city center, such as 50-storey and 35-storey buildings.

We’re busy, and we’re supplemented by boomers. We take new members in regularly. We are confident that we’ll be busy for quite a while.

Members are protected by a strong health & welfare plan, and by both a defined benefit pension plan and an annuity plan. The health & welfare and defined benefit pension plans are 100% employer-paid.

We always work safe!
