In addition, we provide the best health benefits and pension benefits for laborers out there, not just for you but for your family and your future.

Many young people go to school, get a degree, and are tens of thousands of dollars in debt with no job guarantee after they complete their education.

Many college graduates do not even work in the field where they've earned their degrees. When you are a union member, all the required skills and training are provided free of charge at our training facility in Saxonburg. 

If you want to work hard, are drug-free, and have a valid PA driver's license with reliable transportation, you are eligible to become a member of one of the locals of the Laborers' District Council of Western Pennsylvania.
