2023 National Tripartite Alliance Conference

2023 Most NTA kicks off with change, announces new initiative. The 36th MOST National Tripartite Alliance conference opened with what several participants described as a refreshing focus on transparency and progress as the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers emerges from a months-long struggle that resulted in a significant leadership change. Speakers addressed future opportunities presented by new Boilermaker leadership, reported on safety and training programs and discussed the need for a culture of change and collaboration. Also highlighted was an announcement that a new program focused on members’ mental well-being is already in motion to launch. “Yesterday the MOST Trustees agreed to adopt a mental health program,” said Boilermakers International President Warren Fairley, who noted the prevalence of depression and suicide among workers in the construction industry. “We’re not asking anyone to be a counselor, but we want to equip them to know how to help a member get the help they need. If we can prevent one person from doing something that’s irreversible, it will have been worth it. I look forward to implementing that program and offering it to our members.”

The 37th Conference will take place in Coronado, CA August 26 – 28, 2024.
