Benefits to Developers and Contractors

Using union labor makes good business sense for developers and contractors, enabling them to access a pool of qualified workers possessing the highest level of craftsmanship.

Union workers have a comprehensive knowledge of their trade, which they have acquired through apprenticeship programs that train workers to the highest standards. With access to ongoing journeyworker training to keep their skills up to date, as well as occupational safety training, union workers are the best performers in the workforce.

The Trust offers special Labor Relations Services to housing developers and contractors to assist them to meet the Trust's labor requirement and complete projects on time and on budget.

The Trust staff has been highly successful in helping developers meet the union labor requirement on all types of projects in every geographic region of the country, in urban and rural settings, and in all sectors of the housing industry.
