Iron Workers Local #58 is part of an international organization dedicated to providing our members with a higher standard of living through quality craftsmanship and obtaining a decent living saving wage with our signatory contractors.
Iron workers are skilled workers who erect, assemble or install fabricated structural metal products, usually large metal beams. These beams are used in the erection of industrial, commercial or large residential buildings. Iron workers also erect the steel framework on bridges, storage tanks and overhead crane runways that support heavy equipment. They also erect pre-cast concrete, ornamental iron works such as stairways, handrails, catwalks, gratings, grills, screens, siding and metal windows. Iron workers also do light to heavy rigging work, including moving and placing heavy machinery, pressure vessels, storage tanks and materials.
Most of the work is done outdoors. An iron worker cannot have a fear of heights. They must be keenly aware of the dangers to themselves and others.
