The International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT)

Welcome to the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades. The IUPAT represents men and women in North America who work in the Finishing Trades as commercial and industrial painters, drywall finishers, floor covering installers, convention display and sign workers, and many more exciting occupations. IUPAT members’ skills are in high demand at every construction project in North America.

The IUPAT membership extends beyond far beyond the workplace, however. Recognized as one of the most active unions in the labor movement, IUPAT members help shape their communities in many ways: through an abiding commitment to service, by fighting passionately for workers’ rights that benefit all working families, and through effective and aggressive political activism.
