The Employee Bargaining Agency proudly representing over 7000 skilled workers from regional local unions across Ontario since 1978.
Our members are engaged in various sectors of the sheet metal, roofing, siding and decking, and metal production industries. We are committed to ensuring our members continue to possess the necessary skills that have been passed down through generations as well as being trained to work with the latest technology in a safe and efficient manner, thereby ensuring that our companies deliver quality.
SIDING & DECKING
Through collective bargaining, the OSMWRC serves to raise the living standard of all our members. We strive to establish and maintain desirable, safe and healthy conditions with fair wages, benefits and training, in return for our members’ skilled labour.
The OSMWRC seeks to promote our skilled union members, their fair contractors, and the many benefits to customers and communities when they utilize our well trained roofers and sheet metal workers.
Without good paying jobs, our working families and prosperous communities would be threatened. Without highly capable and dedicated workers our projects and again, our communities, would be jeopardized.
We envision an Ontario where every roofer, sider, and sheet metal worker enjoys a quality standard of life, with adequate compensation for her/his services. We envision an Ontario full of opportunity, where good safe and healthy jobs are available for all, including women, aboriginals, new Canadians and youth.
The Ontario Sheet Metal Workers’ and Roofers’ Conference (OSMWRC) was established in 1978 to co-ordinate and facilitate provincial wide collective bargaining for both sheet metal workers and roofers. Along with being the Employee Bargaining Agent or ‘EBA’ for both groups, the OSMWRC acts as a coordinating body with a Board of Directors comprised of leaders from the various Locals in the Province of Ontario. The OSMWRC helps to represent those locals in legal matters, industry circles, politics, and in the greater community through involvement and partnerships.
We are committed to ensuring our members continue to possess the necessary skills that have been passed down through generations as well as being trained to work with the latest technology in a safe and efficient manner, thereby ensuring that our companies deliver quality.
We invite all Roofers and Sheet Metal Workers to join our organization. Whether you’re an apprentice, a material handler, a sheet metal worker, sider and decker or a roofer, there’s a spot for you and your family in our union!

SIDING & DECKING
As the President of the Ontario Sheet Metal Workers and Roofers Conference, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting our website.
Through the strength and vitality of our members throughout the province of Ontario we are able to be actively involved within our communities.
By partnering together with our Building Trades brothers and sisters, our Labour friendly Politicians, and at times our signatory contractors, our Political involvement is an activity that we continue to adhere to, a fundamental part of our organization.
Our members are workers that have been trained to the highest of quality with diverse skill sets possessing the ability to perform the most demanding projects, on time, and on budget.
We have many achievements and have worked diligently to advance our trades throughout the years. Our endurance and hope to advance the “middle class” is our most important message.
We encourage anyone that would like to be a part of our organization to contact us.
“Trade-unions have done more for humanity than any other organization of men that ever existed. They have done more for decency, for honesty, for the betterment of the race, for the developing of character in man than any other association of men.”
– Clarence S. Darrow – November 1909
