Training: is the key to a successful local construction industry. Well-trained professionals are more cost-effective, deliver the best results and help bring about the safest workplaces. By getting the job done right the first time, they actually save money. And safety pays dividends in improved productivity and lower liability costs. We invest heavily in training and make it a top priority.
Professionalism: Taking pride in every aspect of our members’ work is paramount. We believe pride in one’s work, when combined with the professional security a union provides, breeds loyalty to one’s employer.
Partnership: When we teach our members to view themselves as partners in a project’s success, everyone succeeds—our members, contractors and developers and the communities in which we all live and work. We pride ourselves on flexibility, offering special contract provisions to contractors to help them remain competitive in their local markets.
