What does a LIUNA laborer do? Members of LIUNA are experienced Construction Craft Laborers (CCL) that rely on a diverse set of skills, performed on a wide variety of job sites.
We train Construction Craft Laborers in the many different career
opportunities available to them as a member of LIUNA. After learning the basics, an apprentice can move on to training in one of our Training courses in these areas of concentration:
LIUNA members build roads, bridges, tunnels, transit, water, and energy systems as well as work on building, demolition, and renovation projects.
Members assist in the construction and maintenance of power plants and substations, dig trenches for lines, and repair roads after line installation, and build supporting infrastructure such as oil and gas pipelines.
Members are skilled in general construction, concrete placement, roadway construction, site preparation, pipelaying, erosion control, hoisting and rigging, OSHA safety, permit-required confined space, rough terrain forklift operation, trenching and excavation safety, erecting turbines, and solar panel installation.
