Not only do union sheet metal workers earn double the income of the average construction worker, but over 80 percent of the construction contractors and shop owners operating in the sheet metal industry today began their careers as a union sheet metal apprentice.
Famous icons such as the New Year’s Eve ball in Times Square, the flame atop the Statute of Liberty and Charles Lindbergh’s Spirit of St Louis were fabricated and installed by union sheet metal workers.
The modern sheet metal industry has a serious need for more skilled and highly motivated workers. SMART has over 170 Joint Apprenticeship Training Centers (JATCs) located throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico to meet the challenges of a rapidly growing and changing industry.
