   The Western Steel Council is an Association of Reinforcing, Miscellaneous and Structural Steel fabricators, erectors and placers.  It was formed in 1959 and is the largest of the 12 Employer Associations signatory to the District Council Agreement.  The Western Steel Council members contribute 80% of all Associations' hours reported to the trust funds.  The primary purpose of the WSC is to negotiate and administer labor agreements on behalf of ironworker employers throughout the states of California and Nevada.
   The Western Steel Council represents employers at grievance hearings and provides a valuable service in interpretation of the Master Labor Agreement as well as applicable Cal-Osha Standards.  In general, the Council acts as the employer's advocate and information source on all personnel, labor relation, jurisdiction and safety issues.
   Additionally, The Western Steel Council actively assists in the administering and management of the Field and Shop Ironworker Trust Funds which are currently in excess of 2 billion dollars.  The Board of Directors, along with the Trustees and committee members as fiduciaries, ensure the various funds are properly invested and protected.
