About Us

HISTORY

Ironworkers Local 147 was established on September 1913 by the International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental, and Reinforcing Ironworkers. Local 147 is based out of Fort Wayne, Indiana. 

We cover the Northeast portion of Indiana and the Northwest portion of Ohio. Our organization is dedicated to the improvement of wages and working conditions for all people performing ironwork. 

Our 100 plus years of history comes from our predecessors who helped build this Local into what it is today. Without the blood, sweat and tears from our predecessors, we would not have the conditions & wages that we have today.
