Our Members

We are LIUNA Proud, the men and women who have joined together in unity to create stable and rewarding careers for ourselves and the opportunity for a better life for our families.

We are the skilled and productive workforce that makes our employers successful.

We are part of a movement that believes in the dignity of work and that workers should receive just compensation for their labor.

We stand ready to support workers who desire representation and fair treatment in the workplace. We are your neighbors--members of the community who raise families, pay taxes, attend religious services, volunteer, go to work, all the things that people do every day.

I am LIUNA Proud (and here’s why)

1. I earn more -- government statistics show that the average pay for union construction workers is more than 50% above that of non-union construction workers.

2. It doesn't matter what color I am or if I'm a man or a woman -- our contract treats us equally.

3. LIUNA has one of the best continuing education systems in the world – and it’s free. Training helps me find more work and keeps me safer on the job.

4. There's healthcare and a pension – 82% of union construction workers have health insurance, compared to only 46% of non-union construction workers and 77% of union construction workers have a pension plan, compared to only 35% of non-union construction workers.

5. We're better off together than going it alone. Find out more about the campaign to Build America So America Works by creating good jobs and fixing America's basics.
