Local Unions

The State Building Trades stays involved in issues that impact our members’ working lives—from good wages and benefits, to creating a steady stream of work, to keeping the industry strong through apprenticeship. We’ve also been active in promoting our industry to women and people of color and ensuring that they can survive and thrive in the construction careers. Check out updates, studies and videos on each of these issues.
