Local Day 2021: Sheet Metal Workers Local 33

The Sheet Metal Workers Local 33 Toledo District has been serving the Greater Toledo Area for just over 133 years.  We are extremely proud of our heritage in this great city and have enabled tens of thousands of our members to bargain for an honest wage and benefits that has allowed them to sustain and raise their families within the middle class and retire with dignity. 

Local 33 has a state-of-the-art apprenticeship program and training facility. Apprentices earn money while attending school, and unlike college, which saddles many students with an enormous amount of debt, the member owes nothing after completing their 5 year apprenticeship, and commonly earns twice the amount a recent college graduate makes. If becoming an apprentice with Local 33 interests you, we take applications on the 4th Tuesday of every month at the Sheet Metal Workers’ Local 33 Hall at 27430 Crossroads Parkway, Rossford, Ohio 43460

The Sheet Metal Workers Local 33 takes a tremendous amount of pride in our community and our members are always giving back.  Through our PCE fund, we donate monthly to local charities and organizations that help the poor, homeless, veterans, children, animals, research for diseases and so much more.  We live and work in the Toledo Area and we care what happens here, and we do our small part to ensure those in need are looked after.

Local 33 annually adopts a charity to raise money through member, corporate and employer contributions, and this year we chose W.A.G.S. 4 Kids – which provides mobility service and autism service animals for children with disabilities in Northwest and North Central Ohio. We are very proud to help donate to this awesome charity. 

Last year we raised over fifty thousand dollars for Camp Mountain Heart, a charity that provides a week-long camp for children, ages 8-17, with congenital and acquired heart disease free of charge. Not only did Local 33 fund their annual budget, we also helped to provide the means to make desperately needed upgrades. We cannot thank our members and sponsors enough for making this happen.

Through, skill, dedication, experience, and excellence, Local 33 has been a contributing organization in the Greater Toledo Area for the past 133 years, and with these same attributes, we intend to do so for the next 133 years.
