International Association of Heat & Frost Insulators & Asbestos Workers (IAHFIAW)
Local 118 has been helping members find jobs, defend their rights and advance their interests for over 50 years. Education and safety training have ensured that members remain at the top of their field. Today we are leading the way in the movement to build green, energy-efficient buildings to the highest standards.
In Vancouver, Local 54 of the Heat and Frost Insulators and Asbestos Workers was chartered in 1930. It did not survive and the members, mostly from the Plumbers Union, moved back to the Plumbers Local 170.
We have about 375 members, employed on commercial, residential and industrial construction sites.
