The Boilermaker Advantage

The International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, Iron Ship Builders, Blacksmith, Forgers and Helpers (IBB) is a union that was established to implement the natural right of workers to organize.

The boilermaker trade was recognized as a stand-alone craft over 300 years ago. Over 130 years ago, Boilermakers and Iron Ship Builders from across North America established this union so that workers could secure work with dignity along with improved wages, hours, working conditions and other economic advantages through collective bargaining.
