Fighting for local jobs and good working conditions!
Ironworkers — both union and nonunion — recently rallied near the construction site of the new Springhill Suites Marriott to complain about hiring practices and working conditions, including job safety and pay. Read more here about the Feb. 16 protest.

You helped to defeat Prop. 32!
Ironworkers, your efforts helped to defeat Prop. 32 and elect labor-friendly leaders to office, including Mayor-elect Bob Filner. Thank you for raising your voice and letting the world know that we are a strong political force. We must continue our vigilance; efforts to weaken us will never disappear. However, on Election Day, we showed everyone that working people are not to be ignored!
