We are a labor union of Construction Craft Laborers' (CCL's). CCL's are some of the most valuable and skilled workers on any construction project. Union Laborers' provide much of the physically demanding labor at construction projects, tunnel and shaft excavations, environmental remediation projects, and demolition sites. We are specialists in operating a variety of tools and machinery including pavement breakers; jackhammers; earth tampers; concrete, mortar, and plaster mixers; guided boring machines; small mechanical hoists; laser beam equipment; surveying and measuring equipment; and monitoring and sampling equipment.
On Building sites, we mix and place concrete, clean and prepare work sites, dig trenches, and set braces to support the sides of excavations. On many multi-craft projects, construction craft laborers may assist, or tend, other craft workers.
On Heavy & Highway construction projects, our highly specialized tasks include operating laser guidance equipment to place pipes, and setting explosives for tunnel, shaft, and road construction.
On Environmental remediation projects, we perform material and atmospheric sampling; build, clean, and decontaminate enclosure structures; remove, package, and transport hazardous materials.
The Laborers’ International Union of North America—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.
