The statement, 'We don’t go to the office, we build it' rings true with Iron Workers Local Union No. 3. For over 100 years, the men and women of Local 3, in conjunction with its signatory contractors, have proudly completed thousands of projects on time and on budget throughout Western Pennsylvania including State College and Erie. Iron workers are known for their superior training and attention to safety, quality, and service which enables them, along with their signatory contractors and partners, to deliver superior results.

The apprenticeship program, offered jointly by Local 3 and its contractors, helps stimulate and assist with the skill development of new members. Our three-year training program is conducted at our apprenticeship facility located in the Strip District of Pittsburgh. Training is year round as you work for one of our contractors. At seven different times throughout the year, you will be required to attend our training facility for one week at a time. Each training week is set up to follow the same time schedule as a typical work week, combining classroom instruction with indoor and outdoor hands-on training that will simulate the same conditions that you will encounter on the job site. It is a true 'earn while you learn' opportunity.

We're busy, and we need people!

We have many projects on the go, including what we believe is currently the largest construction projectin the US, the Shell Cracker Plant. This project is so big that it will eventually have 300 cranes working on it! We've had a couple of hundred rodbusters working there for a whole, and we'll continue to need more, but our greatest need is for Structural Ironworkers and experienced apprentices. There are 200 of our Structural members working at the project now, but by the end of 2018, we project there will be 650.

So we urge you to Apply Today!! Make sure that when we need people with your skills and experience, we know how to contact you. We keep all applications permanently.

Why should the sky be the limit?
