Join Us as a Skilled Construction Laborer
No Other Trade Invests in Its Members Like LiUNA!
LIUNA—the Laborers’ International Union of North America—is the most progressive, aggressive and fastest-growing union of construction workers, and one of the most diverse and effective unions representing public service employees. A half-million strong, we are united through collective bargaining agreements which help us earn family-supporting pay, good benefits and the opportunity for advancement and better lives.
LIUNA has one of the best continuing FREE education systems in the world. Our training meets or exceeds OSHA, EPA, and other regulatory standards. Local 169 offers dozens of courses free to members that provide them with valuable skills. Classes are available in every state in the U.S. and every province in Canada.
A Culture of Safety
The Union culture of safety saves lives. Members are provided with training in order to recognize potential hazards and are empowered to take action to fix it. Union contractors were 20% more likely to engage in prevention through design practices. Almost 80% of union contractors said they conduct hazard analysis before projects begin; only 56% of non-union contractors said the same. A 1% decline in unionization results in about a 5% increase in the rate of occupational fatalities.
Unions Serve Members by:
Helping members find jobs.
Providing free, quality training to members.
Providing representation for discipline and other workplace issues.
Providing benefits to you and your family.
Providing a pension, making it possible to retire.
Negotiating for better pay and issues workers care about.
