  • As a Probationary member, you are invited to the monthly meetings which are held on the 4th Saturday of the month at 10:00 am. (There is no meeting in August or December.) You will be seated without voice or vote, but it is a terrific way to get involved as a Member.
  • You should always have a Steward on site. A Steward is a Union member who can assist you in the event you have questions regarding your pay, the agreement, what your rights are, and anything related to the Union. If you are on a site without a Steward, please contact the Hall so one can be appointed.

Explore the different tabs to find what you need. You can email any of the staff at the Hall by clicking on the links HERE. We are always available to our members.
  • We encourage you to have your supervisor complete evaluations on you and have them submitted to the Hall; your Steward can also help with this.
  • If any of your contact information changes you need to let us know so we can update your file. You can send it to info@local771.ca or https://form.jotform.com/230045844112041
  • After 3 to 6 months, if you decide to continue your Ironworker career, you will need to apply for full membership. When you think you are ready to make the jump, reach out to us and we will get you the appropriate paperwork to fill out. Your membership will be brought up at a general membership meeting to get feedback from the members who have worked with you. If you are enrolling as an apprentice, the training department will assist you in completing the proper paperwork for school. We look after all the enrollment fees for apprenticeship.

There are a lot of things to learn about being a Union Member, if you have any questions, please reach out to us.
