Metal Trades

Metal trade workers make a difference wherever they work—employed by private industries and federal, state, and local government agencies alike, our union-trained workers’ diverse, comprehensive skillsets are an invaluable asset for the day-to-day functionality for any facility. Our metal trade workers also work for private contractors, providing labor for government contracts under the Service Contract Act. Whether it’s delivering solutions for a nuclear power plant, local shipyard, or strengthening equipment used for national security, SWPTA provides services that matter.
