Thank your Legislators
for standing with working families!
Our bill to close the dangerous prevailing wage loophole in Massachusetts
is moving forward. We need strong allies in the Legislature to help get it across the finish line.
Sheet Metal Workers Local 17 is a building trade union representing more than 2,700 skilled and licensed workers throughout Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. We stand together as the most highly trained professionals in the industry, bringing top safety standards and quality to every project.
Local 17 was formed in 1896 so that men and women working in the sheet metal industry could bargain collectively for better work standards. Today, our members enjoy dignified contracts, industry-leading wages and healthcare, and a sound pension plan they can count on after retirement.
