One big thing you'll enjoy about being a union Ironworker is the pay!

Wage rates are negotiated with groups of employers on a province-by-province basis, and sometimes on an employer or project basis, but generally you can count on being among the higher-paid construction tradespeople in any particular region.

Journeyman wage rates on industrial projects range from the mid-$30s per hour to just over $40 per hour. Total package rates – including pension, benefits, vacation and stat holiday pay, training funds, etc. – are closer to, or more than, $50 an hour.

Reinforcing ironworkers (rod) workers earn a couple of dollars less an hour, and their total package is generally about $3 less than their Structural Ironworker brothers and sisters.
