ABOUT MILLWRIGHT
LOCAL 2309

WE UNDERSTAND
YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS


UBC millwrights are elite construction professionals who have exceptional skills to work primarily with machinery and equipment requiring precision. UBC millwrights install, maintain, diagnose, and repair equipment such as compressors, pumps, conveyors, gas and steam turbines, monorails, and extruders.

"PRECISION AND PRODUCTIVITY" is the standard work product delivered by our millwrights every day. Our members consistently participate in training and skill-enhancement classes to become experts in the use of tools and instruments that they must master. A keen eye for the perfect fit is a primary asset for millwrights, having to sometimes work with specifications requiring tolerances to a thousandth of an inch.

UBC MILLWRIGHTS can be found performing mission-critical work at gas, nuclear, and alternative-energy power plants. Their skills are also vital in industries as diverse as automotive, aerospace, food processing, lumber, pulp and paper, material handling, mining, petrochemical, steel and alloys, pharmaceuticals, and mechanical construction.

Our Certified Rigger and Signaler Program is now accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agency. The certification exceeds all requirements for riggers and signalers in the Canada and USA.
