A future career starts on day one with a good job; a job that can’t be outsourced, that pays well, offers health benefits and retirement plans and provides opportunities to grow. LIUNA can offer all this and more and the first step is through our registered apprenticeship program. Experience in construction is not needed only the desire to learn and work hard. As a LIUNA Construction Craft Laborer apprentice you will “earn-as-you-learn” and receive all the training you need.

LIUNA Training has two apprenticeship programs: one for commercial construction, and one for residential construction to help get you started on a new career.

Opportunities in commercial construction range from working on buildings, bridges, roads and tunnels and protecting the environment by removing hazardous materials, to building pipelines and using the latest technologies in green construction. LIUNA Training’s Construction Craft Laborer Apprenticeship Program can prepare you for the many different types of jobs a LIUNA member performs.

Residential construction focuses on the many aspects of home building and energy efficiency. From single family housing and multi-resident units to “strip” malls and small business complexes LIUNA Training’s Home Performance Laborer Apprenticeship Program may be right for you. Find out what is available in your area to begin your career in LIUNA.

LIUNA apprentices, regardless of experience, immediately begin to earn a wage while learning on-the-job and in the classroom. Compared to the risky proposition of getting a costly college education with no guarantee of a job and student loans to pay off, LIUNA Training’s apprenticeship programs makes so much sense. As your skills, knowledge and experience increase, so does your rate of pay.

As a member of LIUNA, Construction Craft Laborers are offered a variety of work opportunities that create structures that stand the test of time. From the tunnels beneath water and building majestic skylines to storied structures like the Hoover Dam, Rogers Centre Sports Stadium, Trans-Alaska Pipeline and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, LIUNA members have helped to build structures across North America.

Another added benefit of LIUNA’s apprenticeship programs are established reciprocal agreements with many community colleges. Completing your apprentice program can provide you with 30 or more semester hours of college credit toward a degree. And as a LIUNA member, you are always eligible for career-long learning and skills development at state-of-the-art training centers located across North America.

Like any industry, construction continues to evolve and change. Work opportunities that were once plentiful may decrease over time, while jobs we hadn’t dreamed of may suddenly be in high demand. That is the power of training and the power of LIUNA; no matter how much the construction industry changes, LIUNA Training makes sure our workforce stays ahead of the curve.

The power of training can also build a recession-proof career for those workers who take advantage of life-long training at their local area training center. From accredited curriculum to instructor certification, over 70 training centers across the U.S. and Canada have the programs and services to meet the needs of LIUNA members, union contractors and the industry. Each is designed to help LIUNA members adapt to the changes in the industry and keep you working.

More than a century ago immigrants who were seeking to improve their lives founded LIUNA. They paved the way for the modern worker by helping to establish important standards such as the 40-hour week, overtime pay and the prohibition of child labor practices.

That heritage remains today as LIUNA is home to minorities, women, and immigrants, all who have discovered the independence that a career in the construction industry offers. LIUNA also continues to be the proud home of the men and women of our armed forces. Countless sisters and brothers are veterans who have completed their service and transitioned to a career with LIUNA. For the youth who made the move from high school to trade school, they have worked alongside these seasoned journey workers and establish successful careers without the burden of student loans.

LIUNA believes that our diversity is one of our greatest strengths. It is proof of our ideals and our commitment to improving the lives of our members. We stand together as one through justice, honor and strength.
