Newton B. Jones International President
Newton B. Jones has served as the Boilermakers International president since July 24, 2003, when the International Executive Council elected him to complete the unexpired term of International President Charles W. Jones, who resigned after 20 years in office.
In July 2011, delegates to the Boilermakers 32nd Consolidated Convention in Las Vegas unanimously re-elected Newton Jones to a second five-year term.
Newton has served the Boilermakers union in various capacities over the past 33 years - as a construction boilermaker; organizer; director of organizing and communications; managing editor of the Boilermaker Reporter and Boilermaker Organizer newspapers; and as the International vice president of the Boilermakers' southeast area.
Newton began his career as a field construction boilermaker in 1971, working in the jurisdiction of Local 454, Chattanooga, Tennessee, on a Georgia Power project. In 1972, he joined Local 203 in St. John's, Newfoundland, and worked on a refinery job. He later transferred his membership to Local 199 in Jacksonville, Florida, and worked mainly as a high rigger and as a certified pressure welder.
In 1981, Newton joined the International staff as an organizer; he was appointed director of organizing and communications in 1986. He was the principal architect of the Boilermakers' Fight Back construction organizing strategy, an innovative and effective approach to organizing in the construction industry. As managing editor of the Boilermaker Reporter, he computerized the Boilermakers publications department, and oversaw the modernization of all computer operations at Boilermaker headquarters. As International vice president for the southeast area (1994-2003), Newton negotiated one of the largest increases to the wage and benefits package the area has enjoyed.
While working as a Boilermaker, Newton also attended the University of South Florida and Florida State University. He graduated from the Harvard Trade Union Program in 1985.

During the two-hour meeting, International President Newton B. Jones presented a point-by-point rebuttal to the Star's allegations.
You don't even know what [Newton B. Jones] has been up against.
It's a crying shame that President Jones and the other officers had to come here and make this presentation.
I just left a business managers' conference at Marco Island, Florida, and I find it appalling that our president, Newton B. Jones, and all the Vice Presidents (Executive Council) had to explain to us the articles that have been coming out of the Kansas City Star newspaper.
It was not necessary for our leaders to explain; we elected them to do the job, and speaking for myself and others within Mississippi River District 5 that I have discussed this with, the International officers are doing an excellent job.
I remember when President Jones was serving as Vice President of the Southeast Section and times were tough financially for our members. He stood his ground to raise our wages and benefits when several of the contactors were resisting. Due to his hard work and persistence, we received a wage increase of $6.00 per hour plus full benefits, which came to about a $10.00 dollar increase.
Time and time again, he has proven his leadership - as Southeast Vice President and now as International President. Newton Jones has been an asset to this organization.
