Our History

Boilermakers Local 667 was chartered on October 1, 1937 in Charleston, WV by twenty seven (27) original members. Our union hall later moved to it’s current location in 1989. The vision of those charter members still drives the heart and soul of this brotherhood as we know it today. Although most of our charter members have passed on many of our current members are descendants who continue the families legacy.

What We Do

Our work scope in state primarily revolves around coal fired power plants but also includes new gas fired and hydro electric plants. We also do maintenance and repairs at chemical and refinery plants. The surge in Marcellus Shale gas sites has added more work every year. A lot of our members also “boom out” all over the country to help our brother locals when they have manpower shortages.

What Type Of Work Does A Boilermaker Do?

A boilermaker is a skilled trades-person who works in industrial construction, repair and maintenance; manufacturing; shipbuilding and marine repair: on railroads, mining and quarrying, cement kilns, dams and related industries. They fabricate, install and maintain industrial boilers tanks and closed vats. Boilermakers often work in power plants, refineries, and factories, as well as shipyards.

What is the difference between a welder and a boilermaker?

While boilermakers and welders both work with their hands, boilermakers have jobs that are more varied than only metal fabrication, where welders mainly focus on the actual forging/welding of metal. Boilermakers may read blueprints, use measuring tools and also work doing maintenance on structures and within industrial plants.
