The Benefits of Union Membership

Five facts about the benefits that LiUNA members will tell you about:

  1. I earn more -- government statistics show that the average pay for union construction workers is more than 50% above that of non-union construction workers.

  2. It doesn't matter what color I am or if I'm a man or a woman -- our contract treats us equally

  3. LiUNA has one of the best continuing education systems in the world – and it’s free. Training helps me find more work and keeps me safer on the job.

  4. There's healthcare and a pension – 82% of union construction workers have health insurance, compared to only 46% of non-union construction workers and 77% of union construction workers have a pension plan, compared to only 35% of non-union construction workers.

  5. We're better off together than going it alone.
