Owned by the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers and staffed by employees represented by the United Mine Workers of America, Bank of Labor’s mission is to serve the needs of the North American labor movement by respecting and supporting the financial needs as well as the social values and causes of its affiliate institutions and their rank and file members.
“What Bank of Labor is offering the labor movement is a new and better approach to how labor invests its capital,” said bank Chairman and CEO Newton B. Jones, who is also President of the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers. “And as a union dedicated institution, we’re proud to invest in Brotherhood Outdoors because it provides opportunities for everyday union sportsmen and women to experience extraordinary outdoor adventures while sharing their union story with a national audience.”
Airing in 31 million homes every Thursday at 8 p.m. E/P on Sportsman Channel,Brotherhood Outdoors puts American workers in the spotlight, taking viewers into their homes and communities, on their job sites and into the wilderness for exciting hunting and fishing adventures across North America.

“So many union members are involved in projects that improve their local communities and help ensure the future of America’s outdoor heritage, but their efforts often go unrecognized,” said USA Executive Director Fred Myers. “We feel honored and grateful that Bank of Labor has stepped up to help shine a spotlight on those dedicated individuals through our union dedicated, outdoor TV series.
