How Can I Become A Member?

Why should I join LiUNA?
The best wages and conditions are won in workplaces where Union membership numbers are high. The reason for this, is that you are always in a stronger bargaining position if you stand together and negotiate as a group. Unions set an industry standard wage.

Here's how to join;

  • Working men and women get the LIUNA difference in several ways.
  • If you are a construction worker or a public employee, by joining together with coworkers to form a union with LIUNA.
  • In the construction industry, by reaching out to a Local Union where you live or work.
  • By working for an employer which already has a contract with LIUNA.

WE HAVE ONE GOAL

To Make the Lives of Working People Better!

What is the process for Unionizing my workplace?

How would joining LiUNA benefit me?
By joining our Union you will have the protection of a legally binding Contract, known as a Collective Agreement that is negotiated by our Union and voted on by you and your co-workers. As a member of LiUNA you and your co-workers are in a better position to negotiate with your employer as equals, and to protect your interests while you bargain over your wages, benefits, pension contributions, employer policies, schedules, work hours, job security, and a variety of other terms and conditions that are covered under the Collective Agreement.

Are Union dues tax deductible?
YES, Union dues are tax deductible. You will receive a tax receipt for your dues at the end of each tax year.
