About Us

Local 495 was chartered in April of 1936 as a mixed local. Within the industry of Ironwork we currently represent approximately 385 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 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.  

Our trade entails a lifelong career of travel, experience and satisfaction. Our jobs include bridges, schools, shopping centers, high-rise buildings, parking structures, power plants and so much more. This is a tremendous line of work where men and women are able to excel while receiving the benefits they deserve.
