What is an Ironworker?
Ironworkers are involved in erecting buildings and bridges as well as other structures. They follow blueprints to hoist and install structural steel as well as precast concrete, concrete reinforcing materials and other metals used in construction. They set up the framework of a building by positioning steel girders or other structural elements and then bolting them into place. Ironworkers are usually employed by construction companies and sub-contractors and their wages depend on a variety of factors such as demand and skill levels.
Annually, 13,000 journeymen participate in upgrade programs - professional Ironworkers who are striving for more knowledge, greater professionalism, and the next step up in a tough but rewarding career.
