With the demand for the highest-skilled and most qualified worker greater than ever, LIUNA has once again established itself at the forefront of the labor movement by implementing the Construction Craft Laborers' (CCL) Apprenticeship Program. Approved in all six New England states, this program is directed by the New England Laborers' Training Trust Fund and has trained thousands of young men and women who aspire to a rewarding career in the construction industry as proud members of LIUNA.
Most of the Laborers' courses of study are accredited by the National College Credit Recommendation Services (NCCRS). Upon completion of our apprentice program, graduates may earn 18 credits or more towards an associate or bachelor's degree at colleges and universities throughout New England at little or no cost

When we change the narrative, we rid away the stigma that follows those who choose not to take the college path.
