ABOUT US

Operative Plasterers and Cement Masons

International Association Founded 1864

The aspirations of this Association are to construct an organization which shall serve the best interests of all its members and stand a befitting and recognized monument of Association affiliated therewith.

The goals of the International Association and this local are to protect their members from unjust and injurious competition, as well as protect and promote our crafts’ interests through unity of action. To secure the unity of action necessary to accomplish our mutual objectives, the International Association and the Local Union have the additional objective of thoroughly organizing those workers employed at our craft.

As an earnest proof that we entertain a true sense of our obligation, interest and duties toward one another, each member should make himself familiar with the laws herein contained, that he may avoid imposing upon the same, and also be prepared to use his influence on those who do not as yet belong to this Association, or any trade union, but whose only reason for not belonging to it is the benefits offered have never been fully explained to them.
