Laborers 55 understands that turning low wage jobs into livable wage careers is key to strengthening communities and families. It is why we have set our sights on partnering with the public and private sectors to create middle class jobs in both new and emerging fields as as well as historically underserved fields – most notably green jobs and residential construction.
Laborers 55 provides to its partners access to a skilled and reliable workforce. Working hand-in-hand with government and business, our union can accomplish what they can’t do alone: recruit, train, and retain a stable, dependable source of employees.
As a forward-focused organization, a new type of union, Laborers 55 can deliver good wages and benefits to members when they are working and comprehensive support services when they are not. We also offers career training and advisement for those seeking to advance within their profession.
