At the heart of every sheet metal business is the ability for management and their workers to cooperate in a mutually supportive relationship. As an SMCA member you will play a vital role in maintaining the relationship between Delaware Valley sheet metal contractors and Local Union No. 19 of the Sheet Metal Workers' International Association.

The partnership between SMCA and Local Union No. 19 jointly administers a variety of programs that benefit the unionized sheet metal industry. These include:

  • Sheet Metal Industry Advancement Committee (SMIAC)
  • Local No. 19 Pension and Annuity Funds
  • Local No. 19 Health and Welfare Funds
  • Local No. 19 Supplemental Unemployment Benefits (Sub) Fund
  • Karl Weinburg Scholarship Fund
  • Philadelphia Sheet Metal Industry Joint Apprenticeship and Training programs

Finally, SMCA members share the responsibility for renegotiating the ongoing collective bargaining agreement between Local Union No. 19 and SMCA.
