Representing thousands of trade workers throughout Eastern New York

Because we believe that skilled men and women who are the best at what they do deserve fair wages and benefits to enjoy a reasonable quality of life.


Getting all branches of organized labor together to ensure a concerted effort in working with local leaders to stress the benefits of using Union labor on projects - and how the economy benefits as a result.


Craftsmen represented by the council have underwent specialized training programs to be the best at what they do. A quality product put out the first time keeps projects on time and under budget.


We understand the need to keep things running smoothly. We maintain long standing relationships with customers and achieve labor harmony through Project Labor Agreements and similar vessels.
