New York City is home to some of the most impressive high rise structural ironwork in the world, and because Manhattan is an island, it’s got more than its share of awesome bridge projects as well.

Local 40’s 1,500 structural ironworkers are occupied on many bridge rehab and new construction projects, and on very tall high rise towers, some of them soaring above 70 storeys.

We’re proud to have done the structural ironwork on the 1,776-foot Freedom Tower.

We’re working on the massive 3.1-mile long, $4 Billion Tappan Zee Bridge over the Hudson River, and when that’s done, we’ll demolish the old one. We’re at work on the Veranzano double-decker suspension bridge, the massive Goethals Bridge replacement, and we’re doing the rehab work on the Bayone Bridge.

We’re so busy that we have about 400 boomers working with us. We expect to continue to be busy for at least 2 or 3 years, and longer if the economy holds.

Our members are very well paid. Our employer-paid health and welfare and defined benefit pension plans are strong. And we always work safe!

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

Come work with the best!
