|Sheet Metal Workers Local 5|
Welcome to the homepage for Sheet Metal Workers' Local 5.
We are the Sheet Metal Workers of Tennessee, North Carolina, Southern Virginia and Northern Georgia.
Our Union was formed so that men and women working in the sheet metal industry could bargain collectively for a fair day's pay with benefits for a fair day's work. Through the years our union has taken the lead by negotiating agreements with our partners in the industry that have made us the best trained and highly paid professionals in our industry.
Please feel free to look through our web site and you will see that we are committed to keeping our members and our contractors educated and informed about what is happening in the always-changing Industry of the Sheet Metal Workers.
On 7/29/16 Local 5 Reps. Met with Yeager Sheet Metal to finalize a three year agreement. Yeager Sheet Metal specializes in Architectural metal work in the Knoxville and surrounding counties. We first met Merlyn Yeager with the need for skilled manpower and signed a project labor agreement for work at McGhee Tyson Airport after recognizing the skills of our Members we met many more times before reaching this agreement. We currently now have three Journeymen and one Apprentice working with Yeager on various jobs throughout Knoxville. Attached is a picture of left Merlyn Yeager, Courtney Yeager and BM Chris Griffey. Sheet Metal Workers Local #5 are looking forward to assisting Yeager Sheet Metal in new work opportunities and growth.
