Who are we?
LlUNA— the Laborers' International Union of North America—is the most progressive, aggressive and fastest-growing union of construction workers, and one of the most significant unions representing public service employees.
Working men and women who carry a LlUNA membership card live in every community across the U.S. and Canada and come from every part of the world. We work on highways and bridges, waterways and dams, in universities and in government. We build and weatherize houses, and make cities, counties, states and the federal government work. From pouring concrete to handling mail, from helping the sick heal to helping the young learn, we literally and figuratively build America and Canada.
We are 500,000 proud people united through collective bargaining agreements which help us earn superior pay, better benefits and more opportunity.
With LIUNA, we live better.
What do we stand for?
LlUNA stands for fairness for working people, regardless of color, gender, race or ethnicity, no matter our country of origin.
We stand for helping employers succeed based on providing the highest quality of work in the world and by being responsible members of our communities.
LlUNA stands for individual advancement and opening the doors to new opportunity by offering members and employers the best free adult education system there is, with training in the skills needed to build our communities and our countries.
We stand for a strong union movement that can restore the strength of the middle class, and we are doing our share with one of the union movement's most ambitious organizing commitments to help tens of thousands of working people join together.
We stand for power for working people.
What do we fight for?
In government, through the power of our members and allies, on jobsites, through our unity and the strength of our collective bargaining agreements, and in communities, through our activism, friends and families.
Everyone who works deserves:
We owe it to working people:
We fight to reward work.
