history

Local 495 was chartered in April of 1936 as a mixed local. Within the industry of Ironwork we currently represent approximately 280 members throughout the State of New Mexico. Our goals are to provide a skilled and safe workforce, to successfully complete every job, and to promote a family of union Ironworker members.

More than anything our members are the backbone of Local 495 and we believe in fighting for prosperous opportunities, union representation, and health and welfare.
