Holiday Greeting from the International Officers

As we gather for the holidays with co-workers, family and friends, we celebrate the joys of the season and our hopes are for a prosperous and healthy new year. We have a lot to be thankful for as union ironworkers--representation on the job, a retirement with worth and respect, health care, safe jobsites, and a greater standard of living for you and your family.

The death of even one ironworker is too high a cost. Unfortunately, eight of our union brothers lost their lives on the jobsite in 2013. We must recommit and pledge to "See Something, Say Something" in 2014 with the goal of having each and every one of our brother and sister ironworkers return home safe every night. As we welcome the new year, please remember those we have lost, and vow to save a life in 2014.

We wish you and your loved ones every joy this holiday season and a healthy and happy new year!
