We Are LiUNA

LIUNA today honors a heritage that began more than a century ago when courageous workers overcame hostility, threats and violence to join together for better lives. We honor that heritage through current struggles — being heard in government, raising standards for workers and employers on the job, and reaching out to a new generation of workers yearning for a better life.

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.

Apprenticeship: The Key To The Future

The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates the need for close to 1.5 million new construction workers over the next ten years. Recruiting, training and placing qualified new laborers into the workforce has never been so important.
