The Laborers International Union of North America (LiUNA) 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.
Members of LiUNA are experienced construction Laborers that rely on a diverse set of skills, performed on a wide variety of jobsites. Their members build roads, bridges, tunnels, transit, and energy systems, as well as work on demolition and renovation projects.
Members assist in the construction and maintenance of power plants and substations, dig trenches for lines, and repair roads after line installation, and build supporting infrastructure such as oil and gas pipelines.
Members are skilled in general construction, concrete placement, roadway construction, site preparation, pipelaying, erosion control, hoisting and rigging, OSHA safety, permit-required confined space, rough terrain forklift operation, trenching and excavation safety, erecting turbines, and solar panel installation.
LiUNA members are on the forefront of the construction industry – a sector that is a powerhouse of 12 million workers producing 5 percent of our countries’ economic output.
A half-million strong, LiUNA is united through over 400 locals, who negotiate collective bargaining agreements to help their members earn good pay, good benefits and the opportunity for advancement and better lives. From pay, to training, to retirement, LiUNA members live better. Men and women working in the construction industry see the difference a union makes in every paycheck.
LiUNA has one of the best continuing free education systems in the world, with dozens of courses that open the door to new opportunities and provide members with valuable skills. Classes are available in every state in the U.S. and every province in Canada.
LiUNA members are safer on the job than non-union laborers. Their members are empowered with the ability to speak out about workplace hazards and are provided with training in order to recognize potential hazards.
Their retirees can continue to stay involved with their local by joining in charitable efforts, volunteering to do political walks and attending social events with their fellow retired and active members.
