LiUNA’s renewable energy involvement has created thousands of jobs in construction for LiUNA members. Local 1611 members can proudly say that they have played a role in the construction of the Kitimat Modernization Project, all B.C. Hydro Electric Dams including the Site C Dam and John Hart and the Kemano Project Phases I and II.
Not only do our members construct, you will find our members in the processing of recyclables. Throughout North America you will find LiUNA members helping to build solar, wind and geothermal power plants. As the alternative energy field and recycling sectors grow in our Province and throughout the country, LiUNA members will continue to play their role.
