Our Programs

IUPAT members are dedicated to strengthening the communities in which we live and work.

The IUPAT represents a growing force of men and women in the United States and Canada who work in the Finishing Trades – industrial and commercial painting, drywall finishing, glazing and glass work, sign and display, floor covering installation, and many more trades in the construction industry and public sector.

We have programs spanning the United States and Canada that help support our work, the values we stand for, and the betterment of our industry and communities.
