Local 498 works on a wide variety of projects, including sheet metal, metal building erection, reinforcing and structural ironwork, welding, and more. Our members are among 700-tradespeople at work on a major natural gas processing plant. And we get steady work from a stage-by-stage rehab project on Highway I-39, and from a variety of maintenance projects

Our total page hourly rate is very good, and we and our families are well protected by solid employer-paid health & welfare and defined benefit pension plans.

We always work safe!

Applications are welcome from non-union men and women ironworkers and apprentices. We are also interested in speaking to people practicing other construction trades who are willing to consider a switch to ironwork.

Make sure we know how to reach you when our employers are demanding more skilled workers than we have in our current membership.

Work with the best!
