Who We Represent

The International Brotherhood of Boilermakers is a diverse union representing over 100,000 workers throughout the United States and Canada in construction, repair, maintenance, manufacturing, professional emergency medical services and related industries.

With its headquarters in Kansas City, Kansas, the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers unites 420 Local Lodges throughout North America. The International provides numerous services for Local Lodges and individual members, uniting all members in a common endeavor: to improve the lives and lifestyles of members.

What We Do

Today’s Field Construction Boilermaker is involved in more than just the construction and repair of boilers. Boilermakers are a vital part of construction project teams that erect and repair pressure vessels, air pollution equipment, blast furnaces, water treatment plants, storage and process tanks, stacks and liners. A Boilermaker could be involved in the installation of a giant super-heater section in a large utility boiler, the erection of a 750,000-gallon water storage tank, the placement of a nuclear power plant reactor dome or the construction of components on a hydroelectric power station.
