The Union Difference
The heart and soul of our labor union. Collective bargaining is our cooperative strength to come together as workers through the Union to negotiate fair working conditions and set industry standards. Through the negotiating process, we develop a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) for employees and employers to adhere to.
Our Union representatives work on your behalf to defend your interests as a Union member. Union representatives enforce the collective bargaining agreement and communicate Union policy with the membership.
Our Union’s responsibility is to ensure we maintain livable wages in a soaring economy to maintain our status as part of the middle class.
Too often, on non-union job sites, OSHA violations are rampant, and corners are cut so that developers can make additional profits at the expense of worker safety. Through our apprenticeship program and job site safety culture, we promote the highest standards regarding worker safety. We all have families to get home to at the end of the day, and we want to ensure workers make it home safely.
Our healthcare plans cover you and your families. Healthcare includes medical, dental and vision coverage.
Our National Defined-Benefit Pension gives you peace of mind in knowing you’ll be able to live out your golden years in comfort.
Our state-of-the-art training center offers Journeyperson upgrade classes free to members who want to continue honing their craft for the skills that will be needed in our industry in the future.
Our diverse range of employers signed to our Collective Bargaining Agreement has agreed to pay you the prevailing rate no matter what project you are working on.
