IMPACT is a partnership designed to provide a forum for Ironworkers and contractors to address mutual concerns and encourage reasonable balanced solutions. The IMPACT Regional Advisory Boards extend this approach, creating a national network, which promotes discussion of issues affecting the industry as a whole and enables the creation of effective strategies for resolving concerns to create opportunities for the ironworking industry. Our primary mission is to expand job opportunities through progressive and innovative cooperative programs.
IMPACT is overseen by a board of trustees composed of an equal number of labor and management representatives. IMPACT members are Ironworker Locals and Signatory Contractors who are committed to increasing the competitiveness and market share of the union ironworking industry. IMPACT is funded in equal parts by the contributions of its labor and management members who have elected to include IMPACT in their collective bargaining agreements.
IMPACT is a 501c(5) nonprofit and is classified as a 302c(9) organization under the Labor Relations Act.
