"LABEL IT * SCAN IT * REPORT IT" 

 

Our Union label is a tool for protecting union jobs, wages, and benefits. And it’s an essential tool for enforcing contracts. The labels encourage employers to use union-made prod­ucts. For individual sheet metal workers, it means more work, better pay, and healthier benefits.

 The blue label is used on production products. The yellow label represents building trades products.

Wage equalization removes the incentive for employers to use yellow-label products fabricated by union workers getting lower wage rates. By scanning the labels to report which shop produced a product, everyone in the process from fabricators to installers gets the highest average crew cost rate.

Everyone benefits from wage equalization. From a fab­ricator in a lower-rate local who gets a boost in pay from wage equalization benefits to the higher-rate sheet metal workers by removing the incentive contractors have to look for fabricated products from areas with a lower average crew cost. Otherwise, contractors could pursue a race to the bottom that puts pressure on all locals to accept lower wages.
