2015-2016 Training Schedule

The 2015-2016 Training School schedule has been finalized and can be downloaded here for your convenience.

Women across the continent are discovering The Laborers' International Union of North America. "The Women of LiUNA", highlights a number of women whose lives were transformed by starting a new career in the construction industry.

Unions set the standards for wages and benefits that even non-union employers follow.

--“a high school graduate whose workplace is not unionized but whose industry is 25% unionized is paid 5% more than similar workers in less unionized industries.”

Perhaps even more importantly, the hard work of Unions over the years has created an environment in which workers can expect certain protections on the job. The concepts of minimum wage, overtime pay, unemployment insurance, workers’ compensation, family medical leave for the care of newborns or sick family members, and protections for basic civil rights have come about largely thru the tireless efforts of Labor Unions. Unions play a vital role in enforcing these labor protection laws as well. The development of grievance procedures which provides “due process” in the workplace, is used by nonunion employers, but is a tried and true Union idea.

Unions, which are non profit organizations, support our community thru charitable activities, such as United Way campaigns and sponsoring youth sports teams. Unions promote education thru apprenticeship programs, scholarships, and re-imbursement for continuing education.

If there is a way to improve the lives of our members we want to be involved!
