Welcome to SMART Union LOCAL 565
WE ARE A LABOR UNION THAT REPRESENTS MANUFACTURING WORKERS IN WISCONSIN
We are an arm of the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers that was founded in 1888 and currently represents sheet metal building trades workers, service technicians, bus operators, engineers, conductors, sign workers, welders, production workers and more in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico.
Local Union 565 was established in 1956. We have approximately 2750 members from twelve signatory employees in the State of Wisconsin. Our members manufacture ceiling air vents, registers, grills, refrigerators, freezers, wine cabinets, ranges, loudspeaker cones, electronic signs and scoreboards, milk tank coolers, dehumidifiers, and steel storage units. A few of the many jobs our members perform are welders, machine operators, maintenance workers, tool & die workers, assemblers, material handlers, stock clerks, and fork truck drivers. Some members are classified as highly skilled and some are not, but they all perform an important function for their company.
