International Vice President - Canada
Joseph Maloney is the International Vice President for all of Canada. He previously served as International Vice President for Western Canada and assumed the jurisdictional responsibility for the entire nation upon the retirement of Eastern Canada Vice President Ed Power on July 1, 2014, by action of the International Executive Council.
Maloney was unanimously elected to the Executive Council in 2005 and reelected at the last two Consolidated Conventions, in 2006 and 2011. He joined Local 128 in 1974. As a graduate apprentice, Maloney worked as a fitter and rigger. He served Local 128 in numerous capacities from steward to president and finally as business manager. In 1991, he was appointed to serve as an International Rep for Eastern Canada. Two years later, he left the Brotherhood to work for the Building & Construction Trades Department (BCTD) in the Canadian office as Assistant to the Executive Secretary. In 1998, Maloney became the BCTD’s Director of Canadian Affairs, and in 2000 he was elected to serve as BCTD Secretary-Treasurer under President Edward C. Sullivan.
While serving in that capacity, Maloney helped spearhead the U.S. Helmets to Hardhats (H2H) program, which seeks to transition military veterans to civilian jobs in the construction trades. As the Boilermakers’ IVP for Western Canada, he also led the effort to bring the H2H program to Canada.
