About Local 169
Local 169 represents over 1200 workers in Northern Nevada, primarily in construction, including Construction Craft Laborers, Plaster Hod Carriers and Brick Hod Carriers.
Our area of jurisdiction covers the State of Nevada except Clark and Lincoln counties, the town of Tonopah and the portions of Nye and Esmeralda counties lying south of Highway 6 in Central Nevada (see map).
Local 169 has a long history and was originally chartered directly with the American Federation of Labor (AFL) in Reno in 1902, and later affiliated with the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LiUNA) in 1911.
Laborers’ Union Local 169 has its main office located at 570 Reactor Way, Reno, NV, 89502.
Local 169 members enjoy good wages and benefits that include family health insurance coverage, a locally based defined benefit pension plan, and an Apprenticeship and Training Program to improve the skills and safety of Union workers.
Construction Craft Laborers are the back bone of the construction industry and are often the first workers in and the last workers out on construction jobs.
Members of Local 169 enjoy the greatest opportunity for work in the Building Trades. This is a result of the great diversity of the types of work that are performed by Construction Craft Laborers.
