Glazier in Building

Glaziers Local 718 Finishing Salesforce Tower - Organized Labor

The glazier trade is part of the construction industry.

The glazier is a professional specializing in the installation and repair of glass. Most of the time, his work first takes place in the workshop where he measures, cuts and assembles the glass in the right dimensions before placing it on the site. These can be bay windows, display cases, aquariums, mirrors, verandas and doors. Cutting may require the use of machines. Depending on the size and weight of the glass, the glazier may have recourse to special carrying gear. If he occupies this position in a fairly large company, he may have to work in a team with several craftsmen who intervene successively: the cutter, the ice maker and the assembler-installer. The glazier is an essential craftsman in the construction sector.
