Sheet Metal Workers

The Sheet Metal Workers International Association is the descendant of the Tin, Sheet Iron and Cornice Workers’ International Association, founded in January 1888. By 1897, the organization had changed its name to Amalgamated Sheet Metal International Association. In 1924 the union adopted its current name.

In 1901 the union had 5,581 members in 108 locals. By 1925 there were 24,000 members and 441 local unions. Today there are more than 150,000 men and women members working in the construction, manufacturing, service, railroad and shipyard industries.

Notable events in union history include the introduction of union pensions in 1952, working on the atomic bomb during WWII, and helping build the Spirit of St. Louis, the first airplane to cross the Atlantic Ocean (1927)
