Who we are

We are the Mobile Metal Trades Council. The Mobile Metal Trades Council is currently an organization of 6 Craft Unions that are working with the employees at Austal. The unions are listed below. All 6 of these unions have a long history of representing shipyard workers across the US, including workers at Ingalls that are part of the Pascagoula Metal Trades Council. We are part of the Metal Trades Department, AFL-CIO.

The Metal Trades Department is a trade department of the AFL-CIO. It was chartered in 1908 to coordinate negotiating, organizing and legislative efforts of affiliated metalworking and related crafts and trade unions.

The Metal Trades Department is a unique entity within the AFL-CIO. The Department provides fundamental organizing, representation and collective bargaining services to our 25 Metal Trades Councils and five Federal Employees Metal Trades Councils as well as coordinated and strategic support for legislative and political issues and training.

The Department represents multi-union units in a diverse range of industries, including shipbuilding and repair in private and Navy facilities.

Within our Councils members retain membership in their own trade unions.
