The importance of the work that Ironworkers and Building Trades Craft Persons do for our country’s future and the critical role we will play in this year’s elections were emphasized in President Obama’s rousing speech to the 2012 Building and Construction Trades Legislative Conference.  The President’s vision for America is the same as ours: To make sure America has the best bridges, best airports, best infrastructure and best standard of living for America’s workers—and it’s accomplished with the help of Union labor.
