The LiUNA difference
Training for a career
“I haven’t been part of a union before – I didn’t know how much of a difference it could make. I’ve done so much work in construction, so I have all these small skills that I can build on, and the fact that I can go in and build my tickets has been great.”Jennifer C Member, LiUNA Local 1611
