History of Ironworkers Local 155
On March 11, 1914 Local 155 was chartered by the International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Ironworkers. The mission was to secure, by all legal and proper means, the highest possible employment as well as the best possible wages, benefits and working conditions for the membership. We are indebted to those who endured very tough working conditions, stood on the picket lines and fought the fights. Our industry has been shaped by those that believed in something greater. Today we are thankful for the great visionaries that were willing to sacrifice and join a labor movement. Inspiration comes by way of example.
