This week, 75 years ago, Sheet Metal Workers Local 292 was chartered. Since then, we have been providing qualified craftsmen to the automotive and industrial paint finishing industry. The members of Local 292 are the most qualified in our industry, exhibiting a high degree of skill in welding, rigging, sheet metal layout and industrial fabrication. We would like to acknowledge the members who came before us, forging a path to where we are today and to the members who will drive us into the future for another 75 years!

The 4 Plus Member Program

The “4-plus” member program is for any Local 292 member who has achieved four (or more) welding certifications. These certifications can be in any welding process (GMAW, FCAW, SMAW or GTAW). Members who qualify will receive a shirt (one shirt for every four certs) with the 4plus-white-bg small iconlogo, along with hard hat stickers and bragging rights.

If you would like to be a “4-plus” member contact your Local 292 Training Center at:
