Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Diversity and inclusion strengthens our membership, benefits our communities and makes the unionized sheet metal industry stronger and more competitive by reflecting the communities where we operate and the people we serve. Our goal is to recruit, welcome and retain the most competent and skilled workforce available while embracing differences in age, ability, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, national origin, language, marital status, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation and other characteristics that make individuals unique. SMART has no tolerance for bullying, harassment or discrimination.
Dignity, Respect and a Voice
It is the right of every working person to pursue equality, opportunity, a voice on the job and a better life by forming a union. All workers have the right to work in an environment that respects the dignity, self-worth, and basic human rights of every individual. No individual should be expected to accept that they may encounter harassment, bullying, or conduct that is anything less than professional and respectful in the workplace.
