One of the great aspects of the IUPAT that sets us apart from other unions is our shared family values. We take pride in the work we do every day as building trades professionals and hope to set a positive example for our loved ones, as well as our young co-workers, and inspire and teach the new generation of IUPAT professionals what it means to be a union member. In our industry, it is important that we continue to recruit young people and prepare them to be leaders at every level of our organization.
District Council 57 is a shining example of a council steeped in these principles. Photographed below are three generations of IUPAT members with over 100 years of combined service for Local Union 409 (Greensburg, Pennsylvania).
