Increased Profitability

The Laborers Union outperforms its non-union counterparts in productivity, efficiency and worksite safety, delivering projects on-time and on-budget.


Reliable, Highly Trained Workforce

The Laborers Union provide extensive training and apprenticeship programs, which improve quality and safety on work sites. It also gives the Laborers an edge in keeping up with the latest changes in the industry landscape.

Living Wage Makes Better Workers

Living wage jobs not only give laborers the resources and benefits to support themselves and their families, they give contractors the reassurance of having a more reliable, secure and healthy workforce.
