Washington workforce shortage increases, Laborers’ Union fulfills needs.
Laborers’ Local 292 will be hosting its first contractor luncheon as a way to bring the construction community together and educate their audience on the benefits of being affiliated with the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA).
As Washington construction is booming, so has the need for skilled laborers and apprentices. The Laborers have taken the initiative at recruitment and networking events, such as the luncheon, to highlight the importance of how LIUNA can provide good paying jobs with a pension and health benefits to workers and the safest, most skilled construction craft laborers to signatory contractors.
What: Contractor luncheon to promote Laborers’ Local 292
Who: Laborers’ Local 292, guest signatory contractors, minority contractors and other participants relevant to the construction industry
Where: 2810 Lombard Avenue, Suite 100, Everett, WA 98201
When: Friday, August 24, 2018 from 10 a.m. till 1 p.m. with lunch provided

With over half a million members in the U.S. and Canada, LIUNA is the most progressive, aggressive and fastest-growing union of construction workers, and one of the most diverse and effective unions representing public service employees. Laborers’ Local 292 is a proud LIUNA affiliate that represents 1,280 of hardworking men and women of the San Juan, Whatcom, Skagit, Island and Snohomish counties. Local 292 has partnered on projects with Sound Transit, Boeing, Shell and BP.
