Our Mission

Help Us to Build a Better Pennsylvania

When it comes to wagesjob training, healthcare, and pension benefits, Union members have a better life than non-union workers. Unions fight hard to win fair wage rates for workers. Union contracts specify pay, hours, benefits, job safety, and healthcare policies. Ever since the first trade union formed in the 18th century, collectively bargained workers outdo non-union workers by earning:


  • Higher wages

  • Safer job sites

  • Better hours

  • Upgraded health benefits

  • Higher pension benefits

Our laborers do the job right, safely, and with pride that continuously builds and services Western Pennsylvania but keeps it growing, expanding, and running at peak performance, providing a workforce that all residents of Western PA can be proud of.
