Focus on Partnership

Today’s UBC is focused on a simple reality: Our members succeed when their employers succeed. We believe that a construction project is only effective when workers and employers are truly partners.

We know that our union employers need skilled, productive workers to make a profit today and win more bids tomorrow. Our goal is to provide that resource every day.

The UBC commits more than $200 million into our member training programs, which emphasize not only top performance, but also productivity and professionalism. 

We promote partnerships away from the jobsite, as well. Effective political action partnerships help us fight against employer payroll fraud. We rely on relationships to promote many other efforts to level the playing field, so that honest contractors can compete—and win—in the tough construction marketplace.

You'll see the UBC's commitment to partnership on every page and in every story on this site.
