BRIDGE TO A CLEANER ENERGY FUTURE
Opening to the Boilermakers’ 33rd Consolidated Convention
The International Brotherhood of Boilermakers represents more than 50,000 skilled craftsmen and women and industrial workers who work in heavy industry, shipbuilding, manufacturing, railroads, cement, mining, and related industries.
We construct and repair electric power plants, refineries, pulp and paper mills, and steel mills. We build naval ships and commercial tankers, repair locomotives, make cement, and mine coal, gypsum, and talc. We forge tools for industry and make consumer goods.
The International Brotherhood of Boilermakers Apprenticeship Program was established to promote efficient and high quality field construction by skilled craftsmen in the Boilermaker trade. The program provides an opportunity for a person to work through self-studies and on-the-job training, while participating in classroom instruction at Local training centers throughout the Northeast region of the United States.
Boilermaker work demands a high degree of technical skill and knowledge, a dedication to excellence, a willingness to study and complete on-the-job-training, and an ability to travel from job site to job site to maintain employment.
