Have you ever lost your job because your Employer:
Have you been treated unfairly?
It does not benefit us to organize the company and cut the employees loose. The union has long understood that the only way we can ensure decent wages and working conditions for all sheet metal workers, is to manage the supply of skilled manpower.
Again, this will not benefit us in any way. We want you to become union members and stay employed with your current employer.
SMWIA Members have more employment opportunities that non members. SMWIA Members have the opportunity to work for all union contractors. SMWIA Members also have the option of traveling to other local unions for work, through our local to local referral system.
The SMWIA is committed to organizing all Sheet Metal workers in the province of Ontario. The SMWIA is currently working on Market recovery programs to keep our contractors competitive in today's market. By sticking together as Sheet Metal Workers, and demanding respectable wages and working conditions, we can ensure that all contractors are bidding work on a level playing field.
