This Is Our Moment



The time to grow our great union is right now! There is a surge of work coming our way, and if we don’t rise to meet this occasion, we’re never going to see another like it.

Do we have the courage to meet this moment? 

We’re ironworkers, and there’s never been a moment when we didn’t rise to the occasion and meet it head-on.  

We must organize and grow our ranks to meet the demand for workers coming our way. The time is now.   

Watch General President Eric Dean's video presentation below, which outlines the historical references, facts, numbers and reasoning for our call to action.   

It’s time to organize and grow our union, brothers and sisters, this is — OUR MOMENT.
