Upcoming negotiations: In the near future, we will be sending out a request to the membership for your ideas, suggestions and needs for the next contract. We are not in the same position we have been in with the reduction in work opportunities. This may be a time when we look for language changes In lieu of other items. Please jot down any thoughts you have and when the questionnaires are mailed out, please complete them with those Ideas for the committee to review as they make the initial requests that will be presented to the contractors.

Local Union #83 of the Sheet Metal Workers' was chartered on December 1st, 1896. Local #83 represents over 400 highly skilled sheet metal workers who cover fifteen counties in New York State. Those counties are: Albany, Columbia, Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Greene, Hamilton, Montgomery, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Warren, and Washington.

In addition to this, we have access to at least 180,000 members who are affiliated with our International Association. There is no project that we cannot cover with very well trained craftspeople. Local #83 supplies qualified mechanics and apprentices to over 30 local contractors who perform all facets of sheet metal work including, but not limited to: heating, ventilating, skylights, cornice work, lockers, spiral or oval duct, kitchen equipment and testing and balancing systems.

Our contractors and our local union are highly respected for their quality of workmanship and their safety awareness. Again and again we have brought projects in on time and under budget. We have earned this reputation honestly and we take great pride in each and every job we do. Our craftsmen and their skills are the driving force of our local communities in which we are proud to support both at work and when with our families as well.

Our commitment to training, re-training, safety and drug awareness translates into quality craftsmanship, efficiency and productivity on the job site. Using union contractors on projects will insure that you have dependable, competent craft people who will work together to get the job done on time and under budget. Please contact Sheet Metal Workers' Local 83 to become part of this winning team.
