Every day across the United States and Canada, we see evidence of our labor. We build and maintain some of the most iconic structures in the world. We work hard to build and maintain positive relationships with our contractor and owner partners. Many charitable causes have benefited from the generosity of our membership. Along the way, co-workers have become family, union brothers and sisters who will forever be part of our lives.
To pay tribute to our rich heritage, we have installed a permanent multi-media exhibit at the International Training & Education Center (ITEC) that chronicles over a century of growth for our union, alongside the larger struggle for workers’ rights, and the advancements in technology within our varied industries.
In addition, we have also published “125 Years Strong” a full-color journal with stories and interesting facts about the growth of this great organization. (see link below)
As we celebrate this momentous anniversary, let us honor those who came before and those who work beside us today by recommitting ourselves to leaving our union even stronger for future generations. That is our greatest tradition.
