Ironworkers Union Local 378 – Oakland
Ironworkers are among the toughest and gutsiest tradespeople around. We frequently work high in the sky, balancing while tied-off to a steel beam or completing a variety of structural, reinforcing and other types of ironwork on a rooftop overlooking the city.
Ironworkers Union Local 378 represents tradespeople in the Oakland area, north to Lakeport, south to Westley, east of Highway 101 and west of Vacaville and Tracy. We’re made up of dedicated and bold men and women, many of them second- or third-generation ironworkers.
Our members have built the bones of the city’s most prominent structures. We help construct the hospitals where people heal and doctors save lives, the bridges that commuters cross on their daily drives to work, the stadiums where fans cheer for their favorite teams.
With Local 378’s world-class skills and safety training program, drug screening requirements and ability to mobilize ironworkers from across the country to your job site, it’s no surprise that union ironworkers have helped build our region’s most well-known structures.
