About Us

IronWorker Local Union 55 LogoIron Workers Local 55 is comprised of more than 1,000 of the most highly-skilled and trained construction professionals throughout Northwest Ohio.

We are a vital part of the building and construction industry throughout the city of Toledo and across Northwest Ohio, contributing to the countless buildings and structures that adorn our area’s cityscapes. Our members excel in a physically demanding and dangerous trade in order to ensure the safety of area businesses, residents, and visitors by maintaining construction projects that structurally sound and up to code.

We have been serving our contractors and eighteen counties with quality work for 100 years, continuously improving our industry by aggressively training the next generation of construction apprentices and upgrading the skills of our current craftsmen through our state-of-the-art training facility. We strive to keep current with technology for excellent service and safety at the worksite for our members.

Additionally, our members work hard to improve the Northwest Ohio communities in which we also live. We shop at local stores and donate our time and resources to local charities. We serve as mentor in not-for-profit youth programs and serve on community boards. We support local sports teams, including the University of Toledo Rockets and Bowling Green State University Falcons, for whose football departments we sponsor the “Iron Man of the Game” awarded to a weekly top performer on the field as decided by the fans.
